Partial Solar Eclipse

Date: Apr 08, 2024
Time: 1:30 PM
A partial solar eclipse is going to be over West Texas on Monday, April 8th! The eclipse will start at 12:14 p.m. with the moment the edge of the moon touches the sun, peak at 1:32 p.m., and end by 2:52 p.m. when the edge of the moon leaves the sun.

"The total phase of this solar eclipse is not visible in Midland, but it can be observed there as a partial solar eclipse. The Moon covers a large portion of the Sun, so this is a spectacular sight." - Time and Date

VisitMidland has graciously provided Centennial Park with special glasses that can be used to view the partial solar eclipse at Centennial Park! Come out and experience this incredible rare celestial event with us!

A message from NASA: "The Sun is never completely blocked by the Moon during an annular solar eclipse. Therefore, during an annular eclipse, it is never safe to look directly at the Sun without specialized eye protection designed for solar viewing. Viewing any part of the bright Sun through a camera lens, binoculars, or a telescope without a special-purpose solar filter secured over the front of the optics will instantly cause severe eye injury."
