"The Great [North] American Eclipse" Part 2

On Monday, April 8th, 2024, the next installment of "The Great American Eclipse" — the northern version — will take place — following a path from southwestern Texas, across the Midwestern U.S., through the northeast, and on into Quebec, Canada...

Join Twilight Tours, as we again take up the pursuit of the lunar umbra, or shadow, as it makes its way amidst the arid plains of southwest Texas.

This will be our 17th tour to observe and capture the most incomparable sight in amateur astronomy — a total eclipse of our sun.

Our accommodations are now guaranteed at the venerated Hotel Valencia Riverwalk, conveniently located in San Antonio's bustling tourist center. A specially selected observing site — using permanent premises with bathrooms, rooms for relief from the heat, a well-developed observing area — with onsite security provided for equipment set up the day prior to the eclipse, and complimentary cold refreshments and snacks on eclipse day — has been secured. Our site will see some 4 minutes, 17 seconds of glorious totality, with the sun situated some 68° above the horizon.

Weather prospects, similar to the "Great American Eclipse" of August 21, 2017, are projected to be some of the most favorable across the initial portion of the eclipse track — which includes our site located in southwest Texas.

The tour cost includes: 3 nights' accommodation, daily breakfast during the tour, transportation to/from our reserved observing site (located < 20 miles from the eclipse centerline), a celebration banquet following the eclipse event, and Twilight Tours' expert logistical/technical guidance and support that have been a hallmark of our trips for 37 years.

Space is limited on this tour and is expected to fill quickly, so submit your registration form without delay.
