This program is related to the upcoming total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024. This rare event will traverse North America and cross over Mexico, the United States, and Canada. It occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, completely obscuring the Sun’s face. The sky will darken as if it were dawn or dusk.
