Real County, Texas, is in the middle of the “path of totality” for the Annular Solar Eclipse occurring October 14, 2023, and the Total Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024. The “path of totality” is the area where the eclipse is best viewed. The two eclipses crossing paths in our area is a once in a 375-year event, not to be missed!
