On October 14th, 2023, many people in North America will experience an annular solar eclipse. This is different from a total solar eclipse because the Moon is too far away from the Earth at this time to cover the entirety of the Sun. This results in the edges of the Sun encircling our Moon creating what astronomers call the “ring of fire.”
Unfortunately, Fort Worth is not in the path of this ring of fire. Instead, we will only see a partial solar eclipse, where the Moon only partially covers the Sun. Despite this, Fort Worth will see a whopping 87 percent coverage!
Celebrate the Annular Solar Eclipse at the museum! Join us for eclipse activities, space science, and more. Don’t forget to check out the Burke Baker Planetarium’s Totality Over Texas, now showing at the Noble Planetarium. Purchase tickets at the link below.
