This Monday, April 8, 2024, the sun meets the moon! A total eclipse will be visible in North America, crossing Mexico, the United States and Canada. A million curious people are expected to observe this rare event from Niagara Falls, pushing the authorities to declare a state of emergency.

From mainland France, it will be possible to follow the phenomenon, but only on video. The event is significant since the last total eclipse of the sun was more than 50 years ago and the next one will only take place in 80 years.
