Just one year from now, on April 8, 2024, Northeast Ohio and Ottawa County will be in the path of totality for a total solar eclipse. This is a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence – the last time Ohio saw a total solar eclipse was 1806, and after 2024, Ohio won’t see another total solar eclipse until 2099.
NASA’s Glenn Research Center will share that Cleveland, as well as Ottawa County in Northwest Ohio, will be an official NASA SunSpot for the 2024 Solar Eclipse. NASA SunSpots are locations along the eclipse path where the agency will participate in community engagement events, offer eclipse-related programming, and interact with the public.
Some SunSpots will also host broadcast sites that will be part of NASA’s national eclipse coverage, and NASA Cleveland will be one of those spots.
To help spread this news, NASA astronauts Frank Rubio and Stephen Bowen will send a message from the International Space Station to Northern Ohio. The high-resolution video is available for download on NASA’s Flickr’ account. NASA Glenn has begun sharing an unedited version.
