Texas will be in prime position for viewing the annular solar eclipse on October 14, 2023, and total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024.
Based on observations from several NASA missions, an area of Texas near San Antonio will see both eclipse paths cross.
Visitors looking to experience the phenomenon can head to Bandera, Texas, one of the nation’s premier dark sky destinations, which will experience 4 minutes, 3.8 seconds of totality.
Alternatively The Mayan Dude Ranch offers an eclipse package that includes accommodations, viewing glasses, and a watch party with unobstructed views from the ranch’s expansive grounds with a resident astronomer. Meals (featuring barbecue, fried catfish, and steaks) are included, as well as activities, such as twice-daily horseback rides, hayrides, breakfast cookouts, and evening entertainment from trick roping to live music and dancing.
