Will a Solar Eclipse Traverse All U.S. Cities Named Nineveh on April 8, 2024? 

The United States has seven towns named Nineveh, and all of them will be in the path of totality during the April 8, 2024 solar eclipse.

A total solar eclipse will take place for a few minutes on April 8, 2024, in a narrow, curving band across North America. 

 Being in that path at precisely the right time is the only way for people on the continent to look directly at the sun without damaging their eyes until the next North American eclipse in 2044,

so millions of people from all over the world will flock to cities in the path of totality, including Dallas and Indianapolis.

.Eclipses are not discriminatory, therefore everyone in the path of totality will be able to see the sun completely obscured by the moon. 

However, some people have suggested online that there is an unusual coincidence about the eclipse's route of totality.

 It will go through every city in the United States called Nineveh. That name is shared by an ancient city in modern-day Iraq that the Bible describes as "evil." 

Snopes got an email from a reader requesting that we investigate the allegation concerning communities named Nineveh along the eclipse route.
