TOTALITY OVER TEXAS
April 6—9, 2024
Great speakers, a 'Dark Sky Star Party', and over 4 minutes of spectacular Total Eclipse!
With Dr. Doug Duncan of the University of Colorado
On April 8, 2024, the sun will disappear and be replaced by pink flames and silver streamers that stretch across the sky. People will shout, cheer, and cry at the eerie, amazing beauty. Come see the eclipse from the beautiful Lake District north of Austin, Texas. A free, hands-on kids program for ages 5-11 will be offered by CU Science Discovery.
We meet you on your arrival at Austin airport. The group first gathers for Saturday lunch. Saturday and Sunday feature outstanding speakers. Saturday night enjoy a "Star Party" with provided telescopes at a Dark Sky Reserve. Monday enjoy over 4 minutes of glorious total eclipse. Tuesday after breakfast we take you to the Austin airport. All food, lodging, and transportation are provided. Travel to Austin is your responsibility.
For this trip we have TWO HOTELS. The Horseshoe Bay Resort is about an hour north of Austin Texas and near the center line of the eclipse path. Eclipse viewing for everyone will be at Horseshoe Bay. The Hyatt Regency is in downtown Austin. All speakers will talk at the Hyatt Regency Austin in our ballroom. Buses will take participants from one hotel to the other for the talks, star party, and eclipse viewing.
