See other dates and locations for this program on our events calendar.


A total eclipse of the sun will occur over Ohio on Monday, April 8, 2024, during which Cleveland and all of Cuyahoga County will experience about 3 minutes and 50 seconds of totality. This is the first such eclipse over Ohio since 1806, when Cleveland was just a tiny frontier settlement at the mouth of the Cuyahoga.

We have much to understand and appreciate about this rare and special natural phenomenon, and we will also address misconceptions about eclipses and eye safety. Learn some eclipse facts in this colorful, illustrated program.

Presenter Jay Ryan shares more about the eclipse at eclipseovercleveland.com.

About the presenter
Jay Ryan has been involved in astronomy education and promotion around the country since 1996. He is a former Contributing Editor to Sky & Telescope magazine and has published astronomy articles far and wide, including in The Atlantic Monthly. Ryan has been involved in eclipse promotion for more than 20 years, and he helped organize a group of family and friends in 2017 who traveled to Tennessee to witness the last total eclipse of the sun over the US.
