2023 ECLIPSE IN MIDLAND, TEXAS

Annular Solar EclipseOn October 14, 2023, an annular, or "ring of fire," solar eclipse will occur in Midland, Texas. Midland is located just to the east of the eclipse centerline—where annularity lasts the longest—barely missing a direct hit. But the city is so close to that line as to hardly make a difference, with very lengthy annularity durations all over town. In downtown Midland, annularity will last for about 4 minutes and 55 seconds, just 7 seconds short of the maximum duration anywhere in the country. Below, we've provided key details about the eclipse in Midland for locals and visitors planning on viewing the eclipse from that city.
