Mazatlán under the umbra

On April 8, 2024, we will be the privileged witnesses of the total solar eclipse, a phenomenon that will not be repeated for 300 years. According to Gregory Schmidt of NASA’s Solar System Virtual Institute for Exploration and Study (SSERVI-NASA), Mazatlán is the best place in the world to enjoy this astronomical spectacle.

Mexico also experienced annular eclipses, for example on March 7, 1970 and February 15, 1961. The last annular solar eclipse in Mexico occurred on October 14, 2023, crossing the Yucatán Peninsula.

The organization

The city government of Mazatlán, in collaboration with the Mazatléca Astronomical Society, scientists and representatives from NASA, the Mexican Space Agency and the Ruta Eclipse Organization united to organize the total solar eclipse of April 8, 2024.

Minister of Economic Development, Tourism and Fisheries Martin Ochoa Lopez announced the formation of a municipal committee for the eclipse. This committee will focus on preparing the community for a guided and safe viewing.

In a gesture of collaboration, NASA presented a moonstone to the Mazatléca Astronomical Society. This marks the beginning of a fruitful collaboration between Mazatlán and the Mexican Space Agency.

A point of crucial importance was raised by Mayor Edgar González: This guaranteed safety and highlighted the opportunity to put Mazatlán on the world map, as NASA broadcast live from this tourist destination.
