October 14 Annular Solar Eclipse
Considered an amazing opening act to the total solar eclipse 6 months later next year April, here’s your chance to see another spectacular natural phenomena grace our skies. This time lucky people along a narrow path in parts of the Northern Hemisphere will get to see a “ring of fire” eclipse of the sun. Also known as an annular solar eclipse, this stunning event occurs when the moon’s disk is too small to cover the entire sun, and it leaves a ring of sunshine around the dark lunar silhouette.
On either side of this pathway, weather permitting a much larger region of the world will be able to witness a partial solar eclipse, While it may be not be possible for some of us to make it into the ring of fire’s thin path, hundreds of millions more will be well placed to witness an impress partial solar eclipse. Large parts of North America, Central and South America, will see at least a part of the sun blocked by the moon to varying degree. The full eclipse path starts in the United States at 9:13 am PDT in the morning over central Oregon, crosses Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, Texas, and ends at sunset in Brazil.
