The total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 will be most visible in a path from Texas to Maine, with southeast Oklahoma being a prime viewing spot.
You can view a total eclipse, which starts at 1:44 p.m., from three state parks: Beavers Bend, Wister and Lake Talimena. The duration of the eclipse for viewers in Beavers Bend will be 4 minutes and 15 seconds, one of the longest of any place in the U.S.
The solar eclipse is expected to attract tens of thousands of visitors to the state. The next one won’t be until 2044 or 2045.
