Time & Information for the Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse Sunday in Lubbock

The Lubbock area will be in a prime position this evening for the solar eclipse. The eclipse will be happen right before sunset so you will want to be in a location where you can see the western horizon. So what time do you need to get out of the house to see today’s eclipse? According to one report the eclipse in Lubbock should start around 7:30pm. At least, that’s when you will begin to see it. According to ABC News, the optimal time and the most coverage will be around 8:36pm. If the clouds and possible rain hold off, Lubbock should have a great view of the eclipse. Some other cities that are in luck today:
