Feb. 8, 2023- On April 8, 2024 A Total Solar Eclipse will take place, visible only by certain states, Texas being among them. The duration of totality will be up to 4 minutes and 27 seconds, almost double that of The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017.
A solar eclipse is a event that occurs when at just the right moment, the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, causing the sun to become blocked by the moon totally or partially. In a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon. During a partial and annular eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured.
For your safety use only ISO certified-safe solar viewers, keep them on while the Sun is not yet fully eclipsed. Once the sky suddenly turns dark, and the solar corona appears, then you can take off your eclipse glasses or viewers to look at the Sun’s amazing corona.
Sulphur Springs will have a long duration of total eclipse, for a total time of four minutes and twenty seconds. Sulphur Springs will be among one of the prime viewing spots for the eclipse and as such, many visitors from out of state will stop by to view this incredible event in history. If you’ve not seen a total solar eclipse before, put it on your bucket list and mark this date.
