ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A new map for the path of totality for the Total Solar Eclipse has been released and shows the path may be narrower.

So what does this mean for the Rochester area?

James Bader, the director of the Strasenburgh Planetarium, says that Rochester and most of the surrounding communities will not be affected by these adjustments.

“People who should be concerned are those located along the edge of the path of totality,” Bader told News 8. “If you were planning on viewing the eclipse from the southern portion of the Finger Lakes, I would consider heading further north to be sure to experience as much totality as possible.”

Bader clarifies that it’s not necessary to move deeper into the path of totality, but the further you are inside, the longer the view of totality will be.

According to the new map, affected areas include some towns in Steuben, Seneca, and Yates counties. Residents in Rome, Keuka Park, Dresden, Branchport, and the northern half of Penn Yann may need to head north to witness the totality longer.
