  • GEOCACHING: TEXAS ECLIPSE GEOCOINS

    When day turns to night, leave Texas right!

    This geocoin was created to commemorate two eclipses crisscrossing the heart of Texas in the span of 6 months: an annular solar eclipse, sometimes called a 'ring of fire', on October 14, 2023, and a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024.

    One hundred trackable geocoins have been registered at geocaching.com.

    The coins were originally placed in various Texas A&M Forest Service geocaches and other public geocaches across the state. Geocachers are able to locate, move and log these trackable coins.

    • Visited 21 states (plus the District of Columbia)
    • Been found in 5 different countries
    • Traveled over 62,500 miles (more than 2.5 times around the earth!)
