Central Mississippi located in path of totality for 2045 solar eclipse

The 2045 Solar Eclipse Path of Totality

Now that the 2024 solar eclipse is over, enthusiasts will have to wait 21 more years until a similar event happens in the United States.

But unlike Monday’s eclipse, central Mississippi will have the best view of that event.

Cities like Kosciusko and Philadelphia will be along the path of totality for the August 2045 solar eclipse.

In fact, Kosciusko and Attala County will have an estimated 5 minutes and 58 seconds of totality, which means that’s how long the sun would be completely covered.

According to Timeanddate.com, the partial eclipse will begin Aug. 12, 2045 at 10:49 am. The full eclipse will begin that day at 12:08 pm.

And if Monday’s eclipse is any indication, the local economy could see a significant boost come time for the eclipse.

AirBnB reported that 25% of all rentals booked on Monday were in areas along the path of totality and Yahoo Finance reported that car rentals along that same area saw an increase of 3000%.

There will be a solar eclipse across North America prior to 2045 (August 2044), but it will only be visible in three states across the northwestern United States.

Kosciusko is located directly in the path of totality for the 2045 Solar Eclipse. The estimated time of totality is 5 minutes and 58 seconds.
