BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Mark your calendars and do your best to stay alive until Aug. 12, 2045, when a total solar eclipse will pass over Port Canaveral and much of Florida.
The moon’s shadow will cross the country from California to Florida, then darken skies in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname, and Brazil.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth.
A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the Sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness.
Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth’s surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometers wide.
