On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse, known as the “Great North American Eclipse,” will trace a narrow path of totality across 13 U.S. states. Outside this path of totality, most of the rest of the country will experience a partial solar eclipse. According to, Atlanta will see an 81% obscuration with the peak time at 3:04 PM.
