Don't Miss the Total Solar Eclipse: Chasing the Shadow Across Texas!

Texas Eclipse

On April 8th, 2024, a rare celestial event will grace Texas - a total solar eclipse! Witness the breathtaking sight of the Sun's corona as the Moon's shadow sweeps across the state. While photos are impressive, nothing compares to the awe-inspiring experience of a total eclipse in person.

Countryside in Texas

Texas offers the best weather conditions along the eclipse path, with ample countryside and clear skies (hopefully). But the real highlight is the incredible number of people who can experience totality. The entire Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, with over 7 million residents, lies within the path! In fact, over 12 million Texans will have the chance to witness this unforgettable event.

For the best eclipse viewing experience, mobility is key. Be prepared to relocate if clouds threaten. Luckily, major highways like Interstate 10 and 35 run through the path, allowing for quick travel to clear skies. Waco, Texas, will be hosting a major eclipse viewing event, so be sure to check out the details at Eclipse Over Texas 2024: Live from Waco – Texas' Family Friendly Eclipse Festival.

The eclipse enters Texas at the border at 1:27 pm CST and exits at the Oklahoma and Arkansas borders at 1:49 pm CST. The Moon's shadow will accelerate across the state, reaching speeds of up to 1850 miles per hour! Experts predict Texas will have the clearest skies in the US for the eclipse. The Edwards Plateau, specifically the area between Junction and Brady, boasts the best viewing conditions.

Don't Miss Out!

A total solar eclipse is a rare and unforgettable event. If you have the chance to witness this celestial masterpiece in Texas on April 8th, 2024, make sure to plan ahead and secure your spot within the path of totality. Remember, the next total solar eclipse won't grace Texas until 2045, so this is your chance to be part of something truly extraordinary.
