Solar Eclipse Passes Over Bardwell Lake
The path of totality for 2024 solar eclipse passed over U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District's Bardwell Lake. Located in Ennis, Texas, the lake afforded a favorable location to view the eclipse from. With more than four minutes of totality duration, it gave photographers and enthusiasts ample time to enjoy the bucket list event. The max eclipse occurred at 1:42 p.m. While sometimes blocked by cloud cover, much of the event was readily viewable. The "diamond ring" during the eclipse is when a single bright spot remains and the sun's atmosphere forms the ring's band. The green flash occurs as the suns light refracts or separates as it passes through the Earth's atmosphere.
