Tabling activities from MOST and partners like TACNY, OCM BOCES, Maker Faire Syracuse, and more Food trucks Outdoor restrooms Join us at the MOST to watch this amazing sight! Because Syracuse falls in the path of totality, on April 8, 2024, we will experience complete darkness for several minutes, beginning around 3:22 PM. This awe-inspiring event is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come together as we encourage wonder, celebrate community, and educate people of all ages about astronomy and space science. The next total eclipse in New York State will not take place until 2079.
