Experiencing a solar eclipse is a truly unforgettable experience, regardless if it's full or partial. I remember getting up early to catch the partial solar eclipse sunrise in June 2021.

I was very fortunate at the time to be living right by the Atlantic coast on the Jersey Shore. Just seeing that burning crescent pop over the horizon was certainly a sight I'll never forget.

Of course, the solar eclipse on April 2024 will be much closer to totality than the June 2021 eclipse was. However, that eclipse occurred at sunrise, whereas the 2024 eclipse will be peaking during the afternoon.

But regardless of when it occurs, or how close to totality we get, experiencing a solar eclipse is something very special. And if you're wondering what the solar eclipse might look like in your part of New Jersey, you're in luck.

There's a nifty simulator where you can plug in your location and see just how close to totality the Great North American Eclipse will be in your part of the state.

And the best part is, you're not just limited to New Jersey. In fact, you can take a peek at any location throughout the country if you're curious to see what the eclipse will look like outside the Garden State.

Before we check out the simulator, let's first take a look at a few important items to help get you ready for the next solar eclipse.
