2023 ECLIPSE IN CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS

Corpus Christi, TexasOn October 14, 2023, an annular, or "ring of fire," solar eclipse will occur in Corpus Christi, Texas. Before reaching Corpus Christi, the last major port of call for the eclipse in the U.S., the eclipse's duration of annularity—or how long the Sun will appear as a perfect "ring of fire" in the sky—will have been steadily increasing, with the shortest durations on the Oregon coast and the longest durations here on the Gulf coast. What's more, the centerline of the eclipse—where durations last the longest in any one area—slices directly through the center of Corpus Christi. The result is a duration of annularity for this Gulf Coast city that cracks the 5-minute mark in some parts of town, including about 5 minutes and 2 seconds in the downtown area. These long durations make Corpus Christi a great eclipse-watching destination for eclipse chasers seeking the longest experience possible in the U.S. The only risk here is the possibility of cloudiness along the shore during the late-morning hours. Be sure to check short-term weather forecasts for the area in the days leading up to the eclipse. Below, we've provided key details about the eclipse in Corpus Christi for locals and visitors planning on viewing the eclipse from that city.
