View the Solar Eclipse in Delaware County

It is time to prepare for the extraordinary Solar Eclipse taking place on Monday, April 8th. This natural phenomenon occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun causing the Earth’s view of the Sun to be obstructed. While the most northern parts of the state will experience a total eclipse, Delaware County will experience 88%-96% totality. This will be a memorable Eclipse to witness as the Moon begins making its way between the Earth and Sun around 2:10pm with the max coverage taking place between 3:26 pm-3:45 pm with the event finishing around 4:40pm. 

We put together a few places to lay a blanket and get comfortable as you watch this unique phenomenon encompass our sky. Also find some great dining options that will be open on Monday, the day of the eclipse.
