Total Eclipse of the Heart-of-Stowe: Eclipse Viewing 2024 at Topnotch Resort

Stowe will be in totality for almost 3 minutes!

In less than a year, on April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will be visible across North America, and Stowe, Vermont will be one of the best places to view it. This rare event is a must-see for any astronomy enthusiast or anyone who wants to witness the awe-inspiring beauty of the natural world.

The total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow on the Earth's surface. The path of totality, where the moon completely covers the sun, will stretch across the United States, from Texas to Maine, and Stowe, Vermont, is one of the few places in the Northeast that will experience totality making Topnotch Resort an in demand destination for viewing. Totality will start at 3:26pm and last for 2 minutes 48 seconds creating an odd mid-day darkness.

If you plan to view the eclipse in Stowe, Vermont, there are a few things to keep in mind:

First, it's essential to ensure you have the right equipment. Never look directly at the sun without proper eye protection, and make sure you have a safe and secure way to view the eclipse, such as through solar viewing glasses or a telescope with a solar filter.

Secondly, it's important to plan ahead and arrive early. Stowe is a popular destination, and many people are expected to travel here for the eclipse. We recommend booking your room now while there is still availability and find your space on the lawn early on the day of the eclipse to find a suitable viewing location.

Finally, don't forget to enjoy the experience and take in the wonder of the natural world. The total solar eclipse is a rare and breathtaking event that is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who witnesses it.

This total solar eclipse is a unique and rare event that we look forward to celebrating. Plans are underway to have speakers, events and activities to highlight this unique time! The next solar eclipse visible in the United States won't be until 2045 but won't be seen in the Northeast. With proper planning and equipment, and a sense of wonder and awe, witnessing the eclipse with us is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
