This guide includes curated resources in our collection about scientific, historical, social, and cultural aspects of eclipses. Check out the tab for safe viewing as well in preparation for April 8, 2024!


Are you excited for the solar eclipse on April 8th, 2024!? The Upper Valley is very close to the path of totality, meaning we will get a partial eclipse of over 95% coverage!

Check out the information in this guide on the timing and path of the eclipse, as well as resources for safe viewing. In each of the tabs, you can check out resources in the Dartmouth Libraries about the science, history, and social context of eclipses.

And in case you haven't seen it, here is the article written by the Office of Communications about all things eclipse happening on campus.

Out of town and outside the path of totality? Watch the livestream of the total eclipse on youtube through the National Science Foundation!

Enjoy and happy, safe viewing!
