Did you wait too long to buy special glasses for Monday’s eclipse?

Watch the amazing event over at Guadalupe River State Park, 3350 Park Road 31  Spring Branch, TX 78070 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21.

Texas Parks & Wildlife Department’s providing solar glasses and telescopes to visitors at the park. Viewing also available in the overflow parking lot.

The sun, moon and Earth will line up perfectly in the cosmos, turning day into night (sort of, in Canyon Lake and New Braunfels) for a few wondrous minutes and, for the first time in nearly a century.

According to San Antonio League of Sidewalk Astronomers, the annular eclipse will cover only 60 percent of the sun and last from 11:40 a.m. to 2:38 p.m. with maximum eclipse at 1:09 p.m.

Click here to see a NASA video of what the solar eclipse will look like in Texas. The sun will blot out by the moon as it travels across North America, the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in 99 years.

Free with a park pass or $7 daily pass. Children ages 12 and under are free.
