Celestron partners with Astronomy for major eclipse event

Join us in Dallas on April 8 for eclipse festivities!
By | Published: March 29, 2024

On Monday, April 8, a total solar eclipse will wash over parts of North America, from Mexico and Texas in the south, through the Ohio Valley, and northeastward into Canada. The eclipse offers nearly 4½ minutes of totality at its greatest and comes only seven years after a North American total eclipse that delighted millions. After this eclipse, totality will not touch the contiguous U.S. until 2044. Let us hope for clear skies everywhere!

Astronomy magazine is very proud to be hosting an event at Dallas Love Field with the wonderful folks at the Frontiers of Flight Museum there. I’ll be on hand along with our wonderful partners at Celestron, who will have telescopes set up to capture a live feed of the eclipse. Moreover, our colleagues from The Weather Channel will be on hand and you’ll be able to watch me periodically talking about the eclipse on The Weather Channel on eclipse day. Check your TV listings! I’ll also be giving an in-person lecture all about the eclipse in the Love Field Aviation Museum auditorium.

We expect some 10,000 people to be on hand at the Love Field event. In Dallas, we’ll have 3 minutes 51 seconds of totality. We will also have most of our editorial team in various locales: Alison Klesman will be in Kerrville, Texas, and Mark Zastrow and Daniela Mata will be in Mexico. We will bring you complete coverage online and in print for days following the big event. Good luck with your eclipse viewing! I’m always struck by the number of people who become emotional while seeing such a momentous event live!
