With just one year until the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse, Eclipse Over Texas 2024: Live from Waco, a partnership between Lowell Observatory, the City of Waco, Baylor University, and Discovery, is finalizing plans for a major eclipse-viewing experience. On March 31, 2023, representatives from these organizations will hold a press conference to announce ticketing and other details for the event.
The total solar eclipse, dubbed the Great American Eclipse, will be the only total solar eclipse in the 21st century in which totality will be visible from the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Texas is an ideal location for an eclipse event due to accessibility and past weather patterns. This will be the first total solar eclipse to pass over Waco since July 29, 1878, and the last one visible from the continental United States until 2044.
Eclipse Over Texas 2024: Live from Waco aims to create an on-site public event that will be broadcast around the world. The event will take place on April 8, 2024, and the organizers are working on finalizing the details to ensure a memorable experience for all attendees. The press conference will allow media to learn more about the event and ask questions.
Media can attend the press conference either virtually or in-person. Those attending virtually can do so via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILtQihAqIsk and can ask questions via the YouTube chat feature. Those attending in-person can do so at the Waco Convention Center’s Brazos Ballroom located at 100 Washington Ave., Waco, TX 76701.
