Just four days remain to a rare celestial event that won’t be happening again anytime soon, not at least for the next 20 years.

On April 8, North Americans will witness the sky turn completely dark as moon will come in the path of sun, blocking light from reaching Earth.

Those in the path of totality, which will cover an area of 115-mile (185 kilometres) stretching from Mexico to Canada, crossing 15 states of the United States, will get to experience four minutes of eerie darkness, Live Science reported.

Even though, totality will only be visible in 15 states, all Americans will be able to see a partial eclipse from their respective states.

In the US, totality will begin in Texas at 1:27pm and will end in Maine at 3:35pm.

As per Nasa, here’s a detailed breakdown of what time totality starts in each state it passes through.

The total solar eclipse will start as a partial eclipse, turning into a total one, and will later end as a partial eclipse again.

It will enter through Texas as a partial eclipse at 12:20pm in Dallas. Totality will be seen at 1:40pm for four minutes.
