Don’t miss the “Ring of Fire” solar eclipse! The moon will pass in front of the sun on Thursday, June 10.
Why is this eclipse call the “Ring of Fire”? Well, the Earth will be too far so a bright annulus around the moon’s silhouette will be created hence, “Ring of Fire”
“It is never safe to look directly at the Sun’s rays, even if the Sun is partly or mostly obscured,” NASA’s website states. “When watching a partial solar eclipse or annular solar eclipse, you must wear solar viewing or eclipse glasses throughout the entire eclipse if you want to face the Sun.”
The solar eclipse will be visible across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and part of the Southeast and Midwest. In our area maximum viewing will occur after sunrise, which is at 5:32am. The whole eclipse will last about an hour and 40 minutes.
On June 10, an annular ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse will be visible in parts of Canada and the Arctic. A partial solar eclipse will also be visible in other parts of the northern hemisphere, including parts of the eastern U.S. at sunrise.
