Upcoming Eclipse Cloud Cover Forecast

Southern Illinois and Indiana will have high thin clouds during Monday’s solar eclipse. This will still permit good views of totality. Exciting!!

Solar Eclipse 2024 Map

This map shows the path of totality for the 2024 eclipse. Due to the moon’s close proximity to the earth, the width of the path is roughly 115 miles wide. To view this map in larger and other formats, view it at the source: https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/5123/ The previous eclipse in 2017 had a path roughly 62 to 70 miles wide because the moon was further away from the earth.

First Sunset of Spring 2024

Today the sun sets at 271°to the west. It is the first sunset of spring, 2024. Looking forward to a wonderful warm season ahead! Winter is behind us and thankfully, it was mild. Only 1 week of below 0° temperatures in mid January. It is believed that above average Pacific ocean water temperatures played a large role in the warm winter.

Panoramic Chicago Sunset

I took a quick panorama looking south and west before sunset on 3-6-24. As the early March days continue to lengthen, I notice the sun is setting at 264°. In only a couple of weeks the sun will set due west at 270°, when it’s the spring equinox.
