Total Solar Eclipse

April 8 @ 12:30 pm 3:00 pm

For Texas, the partial eclipse starts at roughly 12:25 pm. Totality occurs at roughly 1:40-1:43 pm. The Moon completely exits the Sun at roughly 3:00 pm. The path stretches from Del Rio on the border to San Antonio, Austin, DFW, to Texarkana. In Lubbock, we’ll see an 89% covered Sun, but miss totality.
