Solar Eclipse Peak Time For The Ark-La-Tex
Today is a historic day scientifically because the U.S. will be experiencing a total eclipse from coast to coast. The last time an event of this magnitude was 99 years ago!
Unfortunately, Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas are not in the 'Path Of Totality', the path of complete darkness from the moons shadow, however, the area will experience a partial eclipse. Parts of area will experience anywhere between 70% and 80% blockage during the solar eclipse! The solar eclipse will begin around 11a local time with the peak of darkness happening a little after 1:15p and ending around 2:45p local time.
Here are some peak times along with percent of the sun being blocked around the Ark-La-Tex:
