A rare total eclipse will be visible across western and upstate New York on April 8, reports ABC7NY.

Between approximately 15:15 and 15:30 p.m., the Moon will pass between the Earth and the Sun, turning day into night for about 1,5 to 3,5 minutes. The full path, approximately 160 miles wide, will cross the southwest and end in upstate New York.

This route will include Jamestown, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Watertown, Old Forge, Lake Placid and Plattsburgh. Although New York City and Long Island won't be on the direct path, they will still be able to see the celestial spectacle.

In preparation for this amazing natural event, Governor Kathy Hochul updated New Yorkers on her plans to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

“Whether you live in New York or are visiting to witness this incredible spectacle, ensuring safe viewing of this year's eclipse is our top priority,” said Governor Hochul.
