We are just a little bit more than three months away from what many believe will be the most dramatic total solar eclipse in U.S. history.  It is being called "the Great American Eclipse of 2024", and millions of Americans will take time off in order to travel so that they can personally see it.  

Between now and April, the mainstream news will be filled with stories about this eclipse, and so it is going to be difficult for anyone to ignore what is going on.  

In this article, I am going to share 14 things that everyone needs to know about the Great American Eclipse of 2024...

#1 It is a total solar eclipse that will occur on April 8th, 2024.

#2 The path of the eclipse will travel through portions of the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

#3 The path of the eclipse will also travel through parts of Mexico and Canada.


#4 It is being projected that this eclipse will be the most viewed astronomical event in the entire history of our country.

#5 According to the Washington Post, more than 30 million Americans will simply be able to walk outside of their homes and experience this eclipse...

"This is going to be the most populated eclipse in the U.S. with 31.5 million people able to just walk outside of their homes and experience this event," Kelly Korreck, NASA program manager for the 2024 total solar eclipse, said in a news conference at the American Geophysical Union conference.

#6 We are being told that this eclipse may be "the single-biggest mass travel event" of 2024...

The event may also be the single-biggest mass travel event in the United States, according to the Great American Eclipse website. Several large cities very close to the path of totality are St. Louis, Cincinnati, Detroit, Toronto and Quebec. Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., are also within 200 miles of the direct path.

#7 Those that are in the direct path of the eclipse will discover that the air temperature suddenly becomes approximately 10 degrees cooler once the moon is fully blocking the sun.


#8 The path of the Great American Eclipse of 2024 will cross the United States on the very first day of the year on the Hebrew calendar.

#9 If you put the path of the Great American Eclipse of 2024, the path of the "Ring of Fire" solar eclipse of October 14th, 2023 and the path of the Great American Eclipse of 2017 all on a map, they combine to form a giant paleo-Hebrew "Aleph" over America...


#10 If you just put the path of the Great American Eclipse of 2024 and the path of the Great American Eclipse of 2017 on a map, they combine to form a giant paleo-Hebrew "Tav" over America...


#11 The heart of the paleo-Hebrew "Tav" forms a giant "X" that falls directly over the New Madrid fault zone.

#12 One of my readers pointed out to me that we have seen a giant "X" like this before.  The path of a solar eclipse that occurred on June 16th, 1806 combined with the path of a solar eclipse that occurred on September 17th, 1811 to also form a giant "X" over the New Madrid fault zone.


#13 Three months after the solar eclipse that happened on September 17th, 1811, a series of absolutely enormous earthquakes began to happen on the New Madrid fault...

The New Madrid earthquakes were the biggest earthquakes in American history. They occurred in the central Mississippi Valley, but were felt as far away as New York City, Boston, Montreal, and Washington D.C. President James Madison and his wife Dolly felt them in the White House. Church bells rang in Boston. From December 16, 1811 through March of 1812 there were over 2,000 earthquakes in the central Midwest, and between 6,000-10,000 earthquakes in the Bootheel of Missouri where New Madrid is located near the junction of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.

In the known history of the world, no other earthquakes have lasted so long or produced so much evidence of damage as the New Madrid earthquakes. Three of the earthquakes are on the list of America's top earthquakes: the first one on December 16, 1811, a magnitude of 8.1 on the Richter scale; the second on January 23, 1812, at 7.8; and the third on February 7, 1812, at as much as 8.8 magnitude.

#14 The next total solar eclipse visible from the United States will not happen until 2044, and the path of that total solar eclipse will only touch three states.
