The last time the path of total eclipse passed over a portion of Vermont was August 31, 1932. The map at left, printed in the Burlington Free Press on that morning, shows the path over large segments of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine, along with the gradations of partial eclipse in the rest of the continental United States. 

This year's solar eclipse will take place on April 8 between 2:14 p.m. and 4:27 p.m., with the total eclipse happening at 3:36 p.m. and lasting for about 3 minutes.
