Nothing compares to the otherworldy experience of witnessing a total solar eclipse in person.
A drop in temperature, a 360-degree sunset, a silvery sheen in the sky, stars and planets strangely visible mid-day, insects and birds behaving erratically, shadows becoming distorted…it is truly one of the greatest shows on Earth.
Beyond the unique sensory experience lies something even more astonishing — a cosmological coincidence of metaphysical significance to human existence and the scientific enterprise.
Discovery Institute is pleased, then, to invite you to join us in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex on April 7-8, 2024 for a one-of-a-kind eclipse experience, when the “path of totality” will pass directly over our event venue. Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) has kindly offered the use of their auditorium and football field for our event due to the proximity of their Waxahachie campus to the center line (in green, below) of the path of totality (in yellow).
Our prime location will afford 2 hours and 40 minutes of viewing (12:22 – 3:02 pm) and 4 minutes and 19 seconds of totality (1:39:47 – 1:44:06 pm) — one of the best (and most accessible) viewing locations in the U.S. and almost double the maximum totality of the last total solar eclipse over North America on August 21, 2017.
