What to Expect: Solar Eclipse Phases: At the start, you'll see the full sun. The eclipse progresses through stages, starting with "first contact" when the moon's shadow touches the sun's edge. This transforms into a "partial eclipse" as the moon covers more of the sun. "Second contact" occurs just before totality when the moon nearly completely obscures the sun, leading to the breathtaking "totality." Salmon Lake Park will get 99% of the Solar Eclipse, per nationaleclipse.com. Afterward, "third contact" begins as the moon's shadow unveils the sun, often revealing a dazzling "diamond ring" effect. The eclipse concludes as sunlight fully returns.

Path of Totality: Texas is a prime viewing spot for this total solar eclipse. The path of totality will stretch across the state. Texas will experience one of the longest durations of totality during this eclipse, providing an extraordinary opportunity to witness the sun's corona.
