General Info

An eclipse occurs when one astronomical object, such as a moon or planet, moves into the shadow of another one.

The Moon orbits around the Earth, and sometimes the Moon is between the Sun and Earth. When this happens, the Moon blocks the light of the Sun from reaching Earth, causing a solar eclipse. During a solar eclipse, the Moon casts a shadow onto Earth.

A total solar eclipse is visible from a small area on Earth. The sky becomes very dark, as if it were night. For a total eclipse to occur, the Sun, Moon and Earth must be in a direct line.

Waco, Texas, is one of the best places to view the 2024 total solar eclipse, with 4 minutes and 13 seconds of totality and the best prospects for clear skies on the eclipse path.
