Where are the Best Places to Watch Solar Eclipse in DFW

Where are the Best Places to Watch Solar Eclipse in DFW - The Tuttle Group

On August 21, 2017, we’ll have the once-in- a-lifetime opportunity to witness a total solar eclipse move from coast to coast across the United States. NASA is preparing to do live coverage as the eclipse follows a path from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. While Dallas isn’t in the path of totality (where the Sun is completely blocked), you’ll still see a partial
solar eclipse, where the Moon will block about 75% of the Sun.

The Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas will be hosting a watch party on August 21st and will be giving out FREE solar viewing glasses to the first 300 visitors. They’ll also have their solar telescope out with a special filter that allows for safe viewing of the eclipse. According to the Museum, the eclipse will start at 11:40 a.m. Central Daylight time. The maximum point of the eclipse (75%) will occur at 1:09 p.m., and the eclipse will end at 2:39 p.m.

The Frontiers of Flight Museum is located at:

6911 Lemmon Avenue

Dallas, Texas 75209

This is a great once-in-a-lifetime event. The last time there was a coast-to- coast total solar eclipse was 1918, so don’t miss out. You and your family will remember this for the rest of your lives. But remember, never look directly at the sun without special eye protection!
