Guess what - we're getting an even better eclipse in 2024

A total solar eclipse is an amazing feat of nature no matter what, but Texas is in for an even bigger helping of eclipse in just a few years.

In April 2024, another total solar eclipse will plunge parts of Texas into temporary darkness, with portions of San Antonio, Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth in the eclipse's path of totality.

Here in Houston, we'll be 94 percent eclipsed - compare that to the 67 percent we're expecting on Monday.

If you're waiting for Houston to be 100 percent eclipsed in the path of totality, here's a bit of bad news: it likely won't happen in your lifetime. That won't happen until April 14, 2200.
