What Is An Annular Solar Eclipse?
An Annular Solar Eclipse occurs mid-morning on October 14th, 2023.
The word ‘annular’ comes from the Latin word “annulus” which means ring. An Annular Solar Eclipse occurs when the moon covers the sun’s center, leaving the sun’s visible outer edges to form a ‘ring of fire’ around the moon. It is different from a Total Solar Eclipse. You must have protective eyewear to view this Annular Solar Eclipse.
Where Is The Eclipse Path?
The annular eclipse path extends over North, Central and South America. In the United States, the eclipse will first be visible in Oregon. The eclipse path travels directly over Bluff, Utah, and the Four Corners area.
