Vermont Eclipse 2024 Information

The 2024 Vermont Eclipse is set to occur on April 8th in the Northern half of Vermont, casting a breathtaking shadow across our state. Burlington, Vermont, is the biggest city to witness the cosmic anomaly. Still, there are many other places where you can see the eclipse in its totality, like Johnson, Morrisville, Milton, and Waterbury, just to name a few. Be sure to grab the appropriate eclipse glasses so you can look directly into the heart of the eclipse. Imagine the gradual obscuration of the sun by the moon, transforming the landscape into a sudden night, complete with twilight hues and a cool breeze that envelops the area. Listen as dogs howl at the moon, and the crickets are fooled by sudden nightfall. It truly is a unique, magical, indescribable experience.

To ensure you have the best experience possible during the Vermont Eclipse 2024, it’s essential to plan your day trip carefully. The drive from your Killington vacation rental will likely be over an hour, and traffic should be expected as this is such a momentous event. Because of this, The Killington Group has decided to extend check-out times to the evening in order to give you the opportunity to use our Killington rentals as your home base with no fear of not being able to check out in time.
