Experience The Annular Solar Eclipse In Port Aransas, Texas

Nature has a way of captivating us with its awe-inspiring spectacles and one such event is right around the corner. On October 14th, 2023, a celestial marvel will grace the skies over Port Aransas, Texas – an annular solar eclipse. Book your weekend getaway and witness this dance of the sun, moon, and Earth firsthand on the shores of Port A!

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow on our planet. There are different types of solar eclipses, but the one on October 14th will be an annular eclipse. It only occurs once every year or two, when the moon is at a point in its orbit where it's slightly farther away from Earth, making it appear smaller in the sky. This, in turn, creates the perfect conditions for the sun to create a dazzling ring effect known as a “ring of fire” around the moon.

Tips For Viewing The Solar Eclipse

Safety First: Never look directly at the sun without proper eye protection. Use certified solar viewing glasses or make a pinhole projector to observe the eclipse safely. Bring along enough eyewear for your whole group.

Skin Safety: Even during an annular eclipse, the Sun will still be very bright. If you are watching an entire eclipse, you may be in direct sunlight for hours. Remember to wear sunscreen, a hat, and protective clothing to prevent skin damage.
