|There’s an annular solar eclipse happening across the Upper East Side of Texas this coming Saturday. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the sun. This week’s eclipse is expected to show an 80 percent partial phase. Check with City and Main Street offices in the region to see what’s planned.
Many are using this partial as a trial run for what’s to come when a total solar eclipse becomes a BIG deal for the region April 8, 2024. Our part of the world is deemed one of the best spots to view the phases of the moon crossing the sun for about an hour and 20 minutes and experience a darkened sky in the middle of the day for more than four minutes in the duration of totality.
If celestial observation is not your cup of cocoa, try some activities noted in this issue, and for more ideas check the County Line eMagazine. However you spend your time, I hope your adventures include people who make your earthly journey memorable. — P..A. Geddie
