At this location on planet Earth, on April 8, 2024, you can observe a total solar eclipse. At the same location, at some time on June 29, 2024, the sun will be directly overhead. Where in the world is this?

I am guessing (with help from www.suncalc.org and www.eclipsechasers.com) that you might be on Isla Socorro (a small island about 400 km south of the Baja peninsula). Or you could be on a boat (or swimming) a few km off-shore off-that island.

There appears to be a Naval base there, but I can't find a nice restaurant where you could sit and enjoy a beer while watching the eclipse.
