What is annular or ring of fire solar eclipse?

In all solar eclipses the Moon blocks sunlight from reaching the Earth.

However, an annual solar eclipse differs from a total solar eclipse because during a total solar eclipse the Moon completely covers the Sun. However, during an annual solar eclipse, the Moon is not large enough to completely block out the sunlight and hence, a circle of sunlight is still visible to us.

When and where will the solar eclipse be visible?

On Saturday, the eclipse will be visible at 9:15 a.m. in areas between Eugene and Medford in Oregon.

It will then be visible in Elko, Nevada at 9:22 a.m. and then over southern Utah.

Albuquerque will be able to see this sight at 10:34 am

Followed by Roswell at 10:38 a.m. and Midland at 11:43 a.m.

11:52 a.m. San Antonio and 11:55 a.m. Corpus Christi

Only narrow parts of Oregon, Texas, Mexico, Central America, Colombia and Brazil will be able to see the full circle of fire.

However, the entire lower 48 states will be able to see a partial solar eclipse.

Are annular solar eclipses rare?

Yes! Make sure you follow these times and take a look at the Ring of Fire as the last time an annular solar eclipse occurred over Texas and the Southwest was on May 20, 2012 in the United States.

As predicted, the next one won’t happen until 2046. And even then only small parts of southern Oregon, northern California, extreme northwest Nevada and southwest Idaho will be able to capture the view.

Annular solar eclipse: important advice

To view the Ring of Fire annular eclipse or partial eclipse, please wear protective eclipse glasses to avoid permanent eye damage while viewing it.

Alternatively, you can use a “pinhole projector” to mimic the image of the sun or view the projection in the shade of trees.
