Another Option for Total Eclipse Viewing in Texas
Author Last Post

I'll be in Irving Texas visiting family. Should get about 3min 30sec of totality if viewing allows. Watching the cloud cover forecast. Might get lucky. I saw the August 2017 eclipse in Fort Laramie Wyoming. Only had 1min 20sec totality, so this will feel like an eternity! Good luck and best skies to everyone!


I just stumbled across this in Texas, in Mesquite, which is basically a Dallas metro community just to the east of Interstate 635 and just off of US 80 (south side).

It is at a location called Samuell Farm. Here is the link: https://www.ticketsi.../TotalityDallas

I checked it out on Google Maps. When you open the link you can explore further thru the sub-headings.

Note, I will be a bit further west on the western shore of White Rock Lake. I will still have about 3 minutes and 52 seconds of totality and preferable to me as I will be staying at my daughter's home, just a half mile away. (No lodging cost is nice.!smile.gif)
