BALTIMORE, MD — Excitement is building in Baltimore City and Baltimore County for the April 8 total solar eclipse. We’re not among some 32 million Americans living in the path of totality, but we won’t miss out on the celestial sensation.

In the United States, the path of totality extends from Texas to Maine, but each of the 48 continental states will see some of the solar eclipse, which occurs when the moon slips between our bright star and Earth.

In the Baltimore area, the moon will cover about 88 percent of the sun at the peak of the eclipse, according to a NASA map that is searchable by ZIP code.

Here are the details:

Partial eclipse begins: 2:05 p.m.
Totality begins: 2:46 p.m.
Maximum: 3:21 p.m.
Totality ends: 3:55 p.m.
Partial ends: 4:33 p.m.

The NASA map also has local weather conditions forecasted during the eclipse.

The total solar eclipse starts in Mexico, entering the United States in Texas and traveling through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, as well as small parts of Tennessee and Michigan, before entering Canada in southern Ontario through Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Cape Breton before exiting continental North America on the Atlantic coast of Newfoundland, Canada.
