HOUSTON – We’ve been telling you about it for months, and now it’s almost here. We’re talking about the Great American Eclipse on April 8th. The total eclipse will extend across the United States, and Texas will get the first look.

If you’re in Houston, you won’t see the full eclipse, but you will be pretty close. According to NASA, Houston will receive 94.2 percent coverage. The partial eclipse begins in the Bayou City at 12:20 p.m., and we will see full coverage at 1:40 p.m. Then the partial eclipse ends in Houston at 3:01 p.m.

Which countries will witness a total solar eclipse in 2024?

The path of the total solar eclipse will pass through 15 states, with Tennessee and Michigan barely part of the totality.

Nearly 32 million people live within the totality. Major US cities that will have front-row seats to the heavenly sensation include Dallas, Little Rock, Arkansas; Indianapolis, Cleveland and Buffalo, New York.

While those outside the path may not be able to see the total darkness, many will still be able to see the moon partially blocking the sun. The farther away from the 115-mile stretch, the smaller the Moon’s bite from the Sun.

Kelly Couric, NASA’s eclipse program manager, said the eclipse will allow many to participate in “the wonders of the universe without going any further.”

How to see the 2024 solar eclipse

A total solar eclipse will start as a partial eclipse and work its way up to totality.

Weather also plays a factor in how much of a solar eclipse you will be able to see. NASA said that even with a cloudy day, the darkness of the day that comes with a solar eclipse will still be noticeable.

Viewers should always wear eclipse glasses during any solar eclipse, especially if there is no moment of totality.

How often does a solar eclipse occur?

Solar eclipses of all types occur more frequently than one might think.

NASA breaks down the math into about 2,380 solar eclipses of all types every 1,000 years — or roughly 2-3 solar eclipses each year. As for the total solar eclipse, where the moon completely covers the sun, two eclipses occur every three years.

When was the last solar eclipse in the United States?

The last time the United States saw a total solar eclipse from coast to coast was on August 21, 2017.

More than 215 million American adults watched the total solar eclipse, either in person or virtually, according to NASA.

When will the next solar eclipse be after 2024?

North America won’t see a total eclipse again until 2033, with Alaska getting the only dolphins. Then it will continue until 2044, when the total eclipse will be limited to western Canada, Montana and North Dakota.

There won’t be another coast-to-coast eclipse in the United States until 2045. This one will stretch from Northern California to Cape Canaveral in Florida.

What is a total solar eclipse?

On April 8, the sky will darken to total darkness for a few minutes as the Moon completely blocks the face of the Sun, known as a total solar eclipse.

Such an eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, casting a shadow on the earth, completely blocking the sunlight. According to NASA, those in the center of the moon’s shadow when it hits Earth will experience complete completion.

The sky will darken as if it were dusk, and temperatures will cool as a result of this phenomenon.

During these moments of darkness, most people will be able to see the sun’s corona, or outer atmosphere, which is usually covered by the bright side of the sun.

NASA says that unlike other eclipses, this will be the only type that will allow viewers to temporarily take off their eclipse glasses during a small window where the sun is completely covered by the moon. Until totality occurs, viewers should always use eclipse glasses or other viewing methods, such as a pinhole projector.

A total solar eclipse can mess with wildlife’s perception of time.

During a total eclipse, some nocturnal animals may wake up thinking it is nighttime. For non-nocturnal animals, they may think it is time to sleep.

However, only in recent years have scientists begun to study the changing behaviors of wild, domestic and zoo animals during a total solar eclipse.
