NationalEclipse.com Declares 2024 ‘The Year of the Eclipse’

A Total Solar Eclipse Will Occur in the U.S. on April 8, 2024 -- “The 2024 Eclipse Will Transcend the 2017 Eclipse” -- Last Total Eclipse in the Lower 48 States for 20 Years

NationalEclipse.com Declares 2024 ‘The Year of the Eclipse’
2024 Total Solar Eclipse Path Map

A total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, will cross over Mexico, the United States, and Canada.

NationalEclipse.com, one of the leading online resources about solar eclipses, has declared 2024 to be “The Year of the Eclipse.”

Now less than three months away, a total solar eclipse will occur in North America on April 8, 2024. The “path of totality”—the narrow strip of land within which the eclipse will be “total”—will stretch from southwest to northeast, traveling through Mexico, the United States, and Canada. In the U.S., the path will cross 13 states, entering the country in Texas and exiting in Maine.

The 2024 eclipse arrives only seven years after the last total solar eclipse occurred in America on August 21, 2017. According to Dave Clark, operator of NationalEclipse.com, the 2024 eclipse will transcend the 2017 eclipse in several major ways. “The path of the 2024 eclipse will cross over or come close to more major cities than in 2017, making it possible for millions of people to easily witness nature’s greatest show,” says Clark. “The eclipse also features a maximum duration of totality—the amount of time during which the Sun is totally eclipsed by the Moon—that’s almost two minutes longer than in 2017.”

Clark also points out that the 2024 eclipse will be the final total solar eclipse in the contiguous United States for 20 years. Although a total eclipse will occur in Alaska in 2033, residents of the lower 48 states will have to wait until 2044 to witness another total solar eclipse after April 8, 2024.

Due to the historic nature of the April 8, 2024, total solar eclipse, NationalEclipse.com has declared 2024 to be “The Year of the Eclipse” and encourages everyone to make plans to view this awe-inspiring event. “Many people who have seen a total solar eclipse describe it as one of the most spectacular natural events they’ve ever witnessed,” says Clark. “It’s truly a bucket list experience.”

ABOUT NATIONALECLIPSE.COM

Launched in 2015 to provide accurate and reliable information for the 2017 total solar eclipse in the U.S., NationalEclipse.com quickly became one of the leading online resources about solar eclipses, particularly for the upcoming 2024 total eclipse in North America. Featuring comprehensive information on the 2024 eclipse, as well as an Eclipse Store offering certified safe eclipse glasses and other in-demand eclipse items, thousands of people use NationalEclipse.com every day to research where and how to view the 2024 total solar eclipse.

Unleash the Joy of Breathtaking Experiences Over Traditional Gift-Giving

Hitchd Helps Newlyweds With Its Innovative Honeymoon Fund Platform
Honeymoon Registry by Hitchd

Craft your honeymoon registry and wave goodbye to guessing games. Curate your personalized honeymoon fund and cash registry that truly reflects your heart's desires.

The modern wedding registry no longer just revolves around toasters and dinner plates. Hitchd, a trailblazing online platform, is redefining the wedding gift game by having introduced an intuitive and exquisite Honeymoon Fund concept.

In a world where many couples are already living together before tying the knot, the trend of giving physical gifts has become quite passé. Hitchd propels the joy of gift-giving into more novel and meaningful areas. With a simple focus — facilitating experiences over objects, the platform offers a refreshing take on what makes a great wedding present — a dream honeymoon.

The value proposition of Hitchd lies in assisting couples to curate unique, customized honeymoon funds that align with their dream post-wedding getaways. Be it boutiques in Paris, exotic safaris in Africa or simple sunset dinners on serene beaches, anything can be included in this fund.

According to a 2022 study conducted by Hitchd, couples using Hitchd received an average cash gift of $198, beating The Knot's $160 by +23%.

Instead of gifting another set of dinner plates that will sit unused in the cupboard, wedding guests can now contribute to enriching experiences that create lifelong memories for the newlyweds.

With this platform, romantic activities, adventurous explorations, flight upgrades or even hotel stays during the honeymoon can be taken care of thanks to loved ones.

The Hitchd honeymoon fund truly sets itself apart from the traditional registry's limitations by providing optimal flexibility and customizability both to gift-givers and receivers.

“We’re seeing a significant transformation from physical gifts to experience-driven presents,” says Isuru Fonseka, CEO.

For more information about the Hitchd platform or to start your own honeymoon fund, visit our website: www.hitchd.com.

What is Hitchd?

Hitchd is an innovative online platform designed for modern couples who prefer memorable experiences to traditional gifts. The company's goal is to make gift-giving more meaningful by helping couples create customizable honeymoon registries where guests can contribute to after-wedding adventures rather than being confined to china and silverware offerings.
