Maine Solar Eclipse

The countdown is on!
☀️ On April 8th, parts of Maine will experience a total solar eclipse. Most of Aroostook County will be in the path of totality and communities are gearing up for a day of excitement. Houlton is the last town in the continental U.S. to see the event and one of the places to experience the longest period of total darkness in Maine. Other regions in Maine will be in the path of totality and include the towns of Millinocket, Rangeley, Greenville, Jackman, and Carrabassett Valley will also experience approximately three minutes of totality.

🕶 This is the last total solar eclipse in this hemisphere for 20 years, so you don’t want to miss it. Lodging and other amenities are limited in early April, so if you’re visiting from out of town, we encourage you to plan ahead. #eclipse2024maine #MaineThing
