Experience the 2024 Eclipse in Cincy!

On April 8, 2024, for the first time since 1806 (over 200 years ago!), Ohioans within a 124-mile radius will get to experience a total solar eclipse. The greater Cincy Region, in particular Hamilton County, falls within the range that will experience the eclipse in partial totality.

If you're one of the many travelers planning a trip to Ohio to witness this unique and rare occurrence, let us help you make the most of your visit! 

Note: even during a partial eclipse it is not safe to look directly at the sun. To really experience the eclipse, we encourage you to obtain special-purpose solar filters. Here you will find American Astronomical Society-approved Reusable Vendors for solar eclipse viewers/glasses.
