Delivering resources to save time, lives, and money

Solar Eclipse Resources

The National Operations Center of Excellence is collecting resources for the upcoming, taking place on April 8, 2024. The eclipse will have path of totality crossing 15 U.S. states, from Texas to Maine, including numerous large metropolitan areas. As with the 2017 eclipse, its expected that the movement of both residents of the 15 states and incoming tourists will make April 8 into a large scale special event. 

NOCoE is working ahead of 2024 to help share resources and transfer knowledge to the TSMO practitioners planning for the 2024 eclipse. This page will continue to be updated with resources. 

Are you planning for the eclipse at your agency? Please share with us any resources, planning documents, or other information useful to your efforts by emailing Adam Hopps at NOCoE.
