Mississippi 2024 Eclipse Resources

Mississippi State Parks 2024 Solar Eclipse

For those looking for Mississippi 2024 Solar Eclipse Resources, here is a great start and guide. This article will provide state park information to provide assistance and a centralized place for this information to know where to best view the 2024 solar eclipse.

The majority of Mississippi will be covered in some fashion due to its size and location, as the total duration for the entire state will be at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of at least 79.7% coverage. Although it won’t experience 100% totality, those in Mississippi will have a lot of great viewing options for the 2024 Solar Eclipse view!

State Parks

There are 25 total state parks in Alabama, with all of them being in the path of the eclipse. 1 park has more than 90%+, 8 parks have 70 to 80% visibility, while the remaining 16 parks have between 80 to 90% totality. There aren’t any parks that have less than 89% visibility; therefore, all of the state parks in the state will be listed. We recommend going to each place and finding where in the sky the eclipse will be visible as we cannot guarantee that the eclipse will be visible at each and every park from every location.

The time shown are in CDT, central time.
