Get Eclipse-Ready: Our Guide to the Total Solar Eclipse of 2024

The universe is aligning for a spectacular event in Texas! On April 8th, 2024, we'll witness a total solar eclipse, plunging the day into a brief twilight as the moon completely covers the sun. This rare phenomenon will be celebrated in style!

Safety first! Looking directly at the sun, even during an eclipse, can cause eye damage. Make sure to wear protective eclipse glasses and use a solar filter when using binoculars or cameras.
