Six months after the annular solar eclipse in Texas, there will be a full solar eclipse in April 2024. There are no words to describe or prepare you for the first time you get to witness the splendor of a total eclipse. It’s common for spectators to unleash involuntary gasps, screams, and tears at this breathtaking celestial event. Watch as the moon completely covers the sun revealing its corona that can only be seen during a total solar eclipse.
The total solar eclipse will enter Texas at the international border at 1:27 p.m. CDT. It will then leave Texas at the Oklahoma and Arkansas borders at 1:49 p.m. CDT. The speed of the moon’s shadow will accelerate from about 1580 miles per hour to about 1850 miles per hour through Texas.
