New moon phase on April 8 will bring on the 2024 total solar eclipse

The new moon occurs on April 8 at 2:21 p.m. EDT (1821 GMT) and will usher in a “Great American Eclipse” — the first total solar eclipse to hit the lower 48 states since August 2017.

This time, the eclipse track will run from southwest to northeast, starting in the Pacific Ocean, making landfall in Mexico, and going through San Antonio, Texas; Carbondale, Illinois (which was also in the path of totality for the 2017 eclipse); Cleveland, Ohio; Buffalo, New York; and the Maritime Provinces of Canada.
