Texas Towns Getting Ready for The 2024 Great North American Solar Eclipse

The Great North American Solar Eclipse is a year away. Houston isn't in the path of next April's Eclipse of a Lifetime, but some travel to other Texas towns will give you the opportunity to see the Glory in the Sky and eat some Junk Food to boot!

Quite a few Texas towns are already getting ready for next year's eclipse. Del Rio is busy planning their Solar Eclipse Fest. Bandera is getting ready as well (The Ground Zero Music Fest!). The Scobee Education Center at San Antonio College started organizing their event last year! An S.E.C. staff member saying, "It's going to be a big event! We're expecting thousands! Open to the Public. Food Trucks. Bands. Activities. A really big event!"

Total Eclipse Tonight --- 5/15/2022

The S.E.C. is even moving the event to Northwest Vista College because that location will get a better performance. The San Antonio College site will have a 99% totality - but the N.V.C location will see a 100% eclipse totality. "At Northwest Vista College it will be 100% totality. Even though it's only a 1% difference - when you look at it you'll see a big difference!" Thus the collaboration between San Antonio College's Scobee Education Center and Northwest Vista College will pull off a major educational and fascinating time.

Travel agents are saying to plan early! The Burke Baker Planetarium in Houston is currently showing Totally Over Texas - all about next year's eclipse.
