#1 Postby cycloneye » Mon Apr 09, 2018 12:54 pm

Yes,I am doing this thread well ahead a few years before the eclipse happens as I know many will want to travel to the totallity path knowing where it will be to make the plans for a trip with plenty of time. The city of Dallas,Texas will be the largest city in the totallity path. Times of eclipse from the start to when it ends below at code. Depending on the time zone,is Central Daylight time or Eastern Daylight Time.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Code: Select all

First location to see the partial eclipse begin   Apr 8 at 11:42:10 am
First location to see the full eclipse begin      Apr 8 at 12:38:47 pm
Maximum Eclipse   Apr 8 at 2:17:16 pm
Last location to see the full eclipse end   Apr 8 at 3:55:32 pm

As a warm-up, there's an annular eclipse that cuts through the southwest U.S. and Texas on October 14, 2023. An annular eclipse occurs when the moon isn't quite large enough to completely cover the sun's disk, leaving a narrow ring of sun around the perimeter of the moon. In this case, 89.73% of the sun will be covered by the moon. I might drive to San Antonio to see this one. I saw the May 30, 1984 annular eclipse in south Louisiana when about 99.8% of the moon was covered. I couldn't make out a thin ring of sun around the edge of the moon.

Thanks wxman57 for reminding us about the annular eclipse in 2023.

Also, thanks cycloneye for posting this info on the total solar eclipse in 2024. I definitely am planning a trip to Texas to see this event. It is never too early to plan for this type of event.

It is completely worth the time and money invested to travel to witness a tremendous spectacle of a lifetime. The total eclipse last summer which I traveled to see in Columbia, SC was absolutely a thrill for yours truly!!

Also, this particular total solar eclipse will be about twice in length of time duration of totality than the eclipse last summer in 2017. This total solar eclipse will last 4 minutes and 28 seconds in the center of the path.

That is why I decided to make this thread so early with plenty of time for those like you who are going to make the trip to the totallity path zone. Many details of the trip have to be done well in advance.

Added to the first post the countdown ticker to the day and hour the Total Eclipse starts so it will be exciting to see how the days pass as it gets closer and closer to the big event.

San Antonio is the jackpot winner

2 eclipses in less than 6 months

As for 2023, I'd drive to Corpus instead of San Antonio
