Where In Texas Can You See The Upcoming Annular Eclipse of 2024
On October 14th, 2023, North America will get to witness the amazing spectacle that is an annular solar eclipse. This kind of eclipse is also known as a "ring of fire" eclipse due to the fact that the moon does not fully cover the sun, giving it a fiery outline.

The states that this eclipse will be passing through include Oregon, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and Texas. The eclipse in the U.S. will start on the West Coast, working its way east through the U.S.
