Maine will next see a total solar eclipse April 8, 2024 when the path of totality goes through Western Maine.

The whole nation will be focused on the solar eclipse on August 21, but before you turn your eyes to the sky, you'll need protective eyewear. The last time a total solar eclipse occurred in the Lower 48 was 1979-and that was only visible from a few states in the Pacific Northwest.

For those wanting to view this rare spectacle directly with your eyes, you will need some glasses.
