Solar Eclipse 2024

We’re counting down to April 8, 2024! A total eclipse hasn’t been seen in Ohio since 1806, and the next won’t occur until 2099. Count yourself lucky that you’ll be in the right place at the right time to experience this rare and spectacular natural event!

Are you one of the people inside the 124-mile-wide area of Ohio who will be able to experience a total solar eclipse? Find out on our eclipse page, with a countdown to the eclipse, video of the eclipse path, upcoming eclipse programs, resources, projects, books, and more. While DCDL is not distributing eclipse glasses, you’ll also find links to reputable vendors, as well as instructions on how to make your own pinhole viewer.
