The Palms at Lake Whitney

The Best Viewing Experience for the April 2024 Solar Eclipse in Texas

A solar eclipse is an enigmatic, captivating sight that draws the attention of people all over the globe. And with a total solar eclipse coming to Whitney in less than a year, it’s time to prepare your plans so you can have the best experience possible.

About the “Path of Totality”

The path of totality dictates where the total solar eclipse will be viewable. This eclipse will cross from Mexico through the United States via Texas from the southwest. It’ll then travel on a diagonal up to Maine and through Canada. Each location will have a set time for the totality, or where the moon completely covers the sun, to begin and end. The map below provides a visual for the Path of Totality.


In Whitney, viewers can view a total eclipse for over four minutes! Here are some essential
details to know about the eclipse:

Date: Monday, April 8th, 2024
Total eclipse duration: 2 hours, 39 minutes, 55 seconds
Totality duration: 4 minutes, 24 seconds
Partial begins: 12:21 PM
Totality begins: 1:38 PM

Safety Guidelines for Proper Viewing of the Eclipse

There will be a brief moment where it’s safe to look at the sun during the eclipse – when the moon completely blocks the sun from view. Otherwise, looking directly into an eclipse without the proper eye protection can cause immediate severe eye injury.
There are “eclipse glasses” that enable safe solar viewing, or you can use an indirect method like looking through a pinhole projector.
