When did the last total solar eclipse impact Connecticut?  

Solar Eclipse of Saturday, March 7, 1970 - Our last Total Eclipse as seen in Connecticut.  The event was broadcast in color for the first time by CBS News.  The path was similar to the one expected on April 8, 2024.

The eclipse began in the Pacific and had a path of totality that crossed southern Mexico before entering the Gulf of Mexico.

Next, the shadow hit the United States , first crossing over Florida, then through Georgia, then up the Carolinas into Virginia. It grazed Maryland before heading north and slightly out to sea, then left the coast of northeastern United States at Nantucket.
