So, when does it happen again?
However, if you want the eclipse to come to you then it is April 8, 2024 where you have totality swinging across Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Illinois (across my cousin's property again), Indiana, Ohio, New York and Vermont. It will be hard not to see the eclipse at my cousin's place as we did this trip. It was so much fun seeing it with family members but chances of cloud cover are much lower and the eclipse much longer in Waco, Texas. There you will get 4 minutes and 13 seconds of darkness with low probably of clouds. Dallas gets 3 minutes and 49 seconds so that is an easy reach as well. Austin and San Antonio are fun towns to visit and they get hit with a short totality as they are just inside the path's southern edge. However, they can be staging areas with short trips to the center line. As we learned with this eclipse, the trip back can overwhelm the roads, but Texas looks like the place to be in 2024!!!
