On Monday, April 8, a total solar eclipse occurred. Its shadow (the dark center of the eclipse's shadow) crossed North America, passing through Mexico, the United States, and Canada.

From Morro de La Habana, the start of the eclipse was at 13:39 minutes and 55.1 seconds. The maximum occurred at 14 hours, 53 minutes and 31.6 seconds, while the end occurred at 16 hours, 05 minutes and 11.8 seconds, as reported yesterday by the Institute of Geophysics and Astronomy.

The greatest solar coverage of this eclipse was observed in Cuba from Cabo de San Antonio, Pinar del Río Province at 14 hours 46 minutes 20.6 seconds, with a percentage of 43.9%.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon is located between the Earth and the sun, completely or partially blocking the sunlight. This celestial phenomenon is possible when the Sun and Moon are in alignment from Earth's perspective. It causes darkness in daylight for a few minutes, leaving only a ring of sunlight visible around the moon's silhouette.
