A total solar eclipse will take place on April 8, 2024 and Texas is an ideal location for viewing this rare celestial display. Lowell Observatory is teaming with the City of Waco, Baylor University, and Discovery on a public event, Eclipse Over Texas 2024. This will include an onsite celebration at Baylor University’s McLane Stadium in Waco, as well as virtual programming that people around the world may view.
Eclipse Over Texas: Live from Waco will consist of presentations by astronomers and science educators, interactive activities, and safe telescope viewing of the Sun as it progresses through the eclipse. The partial phase of the solar eclipse will begin at 12:20 pm CDT, as seen from Waco, Texas. The Sun’s surface will gradually be covered until totality begins at 1:38 pm CDT. This will last for four minutes and 13 seconds, after which the Sun will begin its gradual move out of the Moon’s shadow, ending at 2 pm CDT.
