Ring of Fire!

View the annular solar eclipse at the final location on its path in the United States.

An annular solar eclipse will be heading across North America and Mustang Island State park is in the path. During the annular solar eclipse around 90% of the sun will be blocked out, leaving a “ring of fire” in the sky. A partial eclipse will be visible for several hours beginning around 10 am, while the maximum eclipse will last for 4 minutes and 55 seconds beginning at 11:56 am at the Day-Use beach.

Mustang Island State Park will be the last place in the US to see the maximum eclipse.
