• On Oct. 14, 2023, an annular eclipse was visible from Dallas, Texas, beginning at 10:25 a.m. and peaking at 11:55 a.m

• At the eclipse’s peak, 80% of the Sun was covered by the Moon.

• Leaves from trees on campus created a pinhole camera effect, casting small crescent shaped shadows in the pattern of the eclipse.

• A viewing event was held in the SCI courtyard, hosted by the UTD Eclipse Planning Committee, NSM, the UTeach Dallas program and the Department of Physics.

• Comets should prepare for April 8, 2024, when Dallas will be in the path of a total solar eclipse.
