The next April 8, 2024, Mexico will witness a majestic solar eclipsean event that will not be repeated in the country until next year 2045. This astronomical phenomenon positions the nation as one of the best places in the world for its observation, although some states will have less privileged visibility of the event.

Throughout the Mexican territory, the opportunity to be a spectator of this eclipse varies depending on geographic location, which determines the quality of the viewing experience. The states with worse vision of the eclipse in Mexico have not yet been specified in detail, but this factor depends on the trajectory of the shadow of the moon on the earth’s surface. This route directly influences how, when, and where the sighting of the phenomenon will be most optimal.

He solar eclipse It is characterized by being an event in which the Moon comes between the Sun and the Landgenerating a shadow that partially or totally obscures sunlight in certain areas of the planet. The expectation surrounding this celestial event is due to its rarity and its spectacular nature, offering a unique experience to those who manage to observe it directly.

For those who are anticipating the next solar eclipsehas been identified Chiapas, Yucatan, Campecheand Quintana Roo as the least favorable states to observe this astronomical phenomenon in Mexico. This event, which arouses great interest among both astronomy professionals and amateurs, will have reduced visibility in the aforementioned locations due to specific geographical and meteorological conditions.

Factors contributing to this situation include the geographic position of these states in relation to the eclipse path, as well as prevailing weather conditions that may obstruct views due to cloud cover. Despite these obstacles, it is hoped that in other parts of the country and in nearby regions of America, the eclipse can be observed under better circumstances, allowing viewers to enjoy this rare celestial spectacle.

The event, which will begin exactly at 9:51:23 a.m., will continue until reaching its peak at 11:07:25 a.m., ending at 11:11:45 a.m. This extraordinary natural exhibition can be observed in its entirety in the states of Sinaloa, Durango and Coahuilawith Mazatlanin Sinaloa, standing out as the favorite place both nationally and internationally to contemplate this spectacle.

This event has been confirmed by prestigious scientific entities, including the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the POT. Both institutions have highlighted the uniqueness of the event and have offered crucial details for observation. NASA, in particular, has shared a two-minute animation that illustrates the detailed path of the eclipse. This visual resource has generated great expectation among the online community, facilitating the understanding of the phenomenon and its impact in the specified regions.

The Institute of Geophysics of the UNAM has played an important role in the dissemination of information, because it supports the data provided by NASA and emphasizing the privileged position of Mazatlan to enjoy the eclipse. This convergence of technical analysis and practical recommendations seeks to ensure that the public takes full advantage of the opportunity to witness an event of this magnitude. The collaboration between space agencies and educational institutions in the dissemination of these types of events underlines the relevance of astronomy in popular culture and science, as well as its ability to unite people around phenomena of a universal scale.
