As the countdown continues to the April 8th solar eclipse, the Trumbull County Tourism Bureau is announcing more spots to view the event in its totality.

Most of Trumbull County lies within the path of the rare celestial event; the first total solar eclipse visible in Ohio since 1806.

According to an update published on Thursday, people wanting to watch the moon pass in front of the sun can stop by the Kinsman Library, the Lakeview Recreation Area at Mosquito Lake State Park, the Eastwood Mall Complex, the Grand Resort, and Warren G Harding’s Mollenkopf Stadium.

Although these areas have been identified as ideal spots within the path of the eclipse, each location will provide varying durations of totality.

The eclipse is expected to begin at 2:00 p.m. local time, with the total eclipse phase commencing at 3:15 p.m. During the full eclipse, the sky will transform into twilight, and streetlights will flicker on, emulating the arrival of nightfall.

Attendees are advised to bring approved eclipse-viewing glasses that comply with international safety standards, clearly marked with ISO 12312-2. As the demand for eclipse glasses increases, it is recommended that individuals obtain their glasses well in advance from reputable vendors provided by the American Astronomical Society.

Trumbull Tourism has sold out of its supply of 5,000 glasses.
