North America


It’s a good time to be chasing eclipses in America; 2017 was the first of two total solar eclipses in just seven years. Even better, the 2024 event is technically even more impressive, with totality lasting a mighty 4 minutes, 28 seconds at its peak. However, it occurs in spring when clear skies are less likely. Beginning in Mexico and ending in Canada (passing through Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia Newfoundland), the path of totality also crosses Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, New York, and Vermont.

Greatest duration will occur near Torreón, Mexico, and Mexico and Texas will have the greatest chance of clear skies. Dallas will receive 3 minutes 49 seconds of totality and Waco 4 minutes 13 seconds, while Austin and San Antonio are both just inside the path of totality’s southern limit.

Omni La Costa 

One of the great things I get to do is meet great people and visit tremendous properties.

Lucky to be at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa this week and get to talk to the Director of Tennis and one of the great representatives of Cliff Drysdale Tennis, Bryce Cunnngham.
