2024 SOLAR ECLIPSE
Have you ever seen a TOTAL eclipse before? If you have, you know that when the last sliver of sunlight disappears the world is magically transformed, with an ethereal beauty you don't see any other time. Even when 99% of the sun is covered, you miss the spectacular effects. So if you haven't seen a total eclipse talk to someone who has, and DON'T MISS THIS CHANCE OF A LIFETIME! The video above gives you a taste of the excitement. The real thing is MUCH more spectacular than any video, but the sound of people reacting will give you an idea.
We will watch the April 8, 2024 eclipse from the lawn of Horseshoe Bay Resort, about an hour north of Austin Texas. The hotel is right near the center line of the eclipse, where the total phase will last an incredible 4 minutes and 15 seconds.
