2024 Solar Eclipse


The Solar Eclipse in AISD

Don’t let a cloudy forecast stop you from enjoying what may be a once-in-a-lifetime event for many!

You will still experience totality - 100% of the face of the sun will still be covered by the moon.  A cloudy scenario actually produces a much more pronounced darkness. This is due to the combined light-blocking effect of both totality & the influence of the clouds themselves. You may not be able to have a clear view of the eclipse due to the clouds, but overcast totality is still a unique experience.  Listen for changes in bird and insect sounds, or look for changes in their behavior. As the sunlight fades, wildlife might act as if nighttime is approaching.

In the event of inclement weather, students will watch the eclipse live via the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse: Through the Eyes of NASA broadcast.
