The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has announced that they will set up telescopes in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, with which they will be able to broadcast the path of the total solar eclipse scheduled to occur on April 8, 2024.
Through the Mazatlan Astronomical Society, it was revealed that scientists Kristina Gibbs and Gregory Schmidt, members of NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI NASA), will be responsible for documenting the total eclipse.
They will also be accompanied by Brian Day, who is part of the SSERVI scientist team, and Mario Arreola Santander, an expert from the Mexican Space Agency, the organization responsible for discussing Mexico’s space policy.
According to information provided by the Mazatlan Astronomical Society, they plan to broadcast the eclipse worldwide through NASA’s official websites. Additionally, there will be public events where telescopes will be set up in different parts of Mazatlán.
Furthermore, it was also announced that the North American Space Agency will provide some special solar filters so that people in Mazatlán have the opportunity to observe this astronomical event.
The installation of all the equipment will begin in December of this year, where a group from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration will gather in the port of Mazatlán to locate the best area to follow the eclipse’s path.
Other locations where the eclipse’s path will be visible include Durango, Coahuila, the eastern coast of the United States, and Canada.
