A partial solar eclipse will be seen in Texas on Monday, August 21. Over the past century or so, the state has seen its fair share of partial solar eclipses, but has not been in the direct path of the so-called “zone of totality.” The “zone of totality” is the phrase used to describe the direct path of the solar eclipse. States that fall in this area will experience total darkness during the peak of the eclipse.
Although the Lone Star State will not experience totality on Monday, various towns and cities will see various percentages of occlusion. See the map below to see the visibility in your area.

An annular eclipse occurs when the moon is further away in its orbit from the earth, and thus appears smaller in the sky. In an annular eclipse, the whole of the moon does cross the sun’s path, but, since it appears smaller, it does not fully occlude the sun.
