Solar Eclipse

Newton County Arkansas
Total Solar Eclipse

Parts of Newton County will experience totality for 2 minutes 4.2 seconds.

Jasper is surrounded by natural beauty and outdoor opportunities like hiking, canoeing, caving, rock climbing, fishing, hunting, mountain biking and horseback riding. This is also the area where the nearby Buffalo National River, the nation’s first national river, begins to flow. A herd of about 600 elk roams the Buffalo River corridor.

The picturesque Jasper square with its beautiful courthouse in the middle and gazebos on the grounds is fun to visit. There are unique eateries, antiques and shops. A small hotel can be found in the town but camping and cabins in the area are plentiful.

On April 8, 2024, nearly 2/3 of Arkansas will be within the path of totality for the Total Solar Eclipse, the only event in the 21st century where totality is visible in Mexico, the United States of America and Canada. This event will bring thousands of visitors to The Natural State to experience the phenomenon.


If you’ve not seen a total solar eclipse before, put it on your bucket list and mark this date! It is truly a breath-taking sight and you won’t regret traveling to see the Sun’s corona, while you stand in the shadow of the moon.
