We will witness the Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse Next Week

The “super floral blood moon” lunar Eclipse of last month was far from the interesting astronomical occurrence of the season. A ring of fire solar Eclipse, which is rare, will occur next week, making for an even more spectacular show. The will be visible to people all over the world on June 10.

When the moon passes squarely between the Earth and the sun, covering the sun’s entire light, a total solar Eclipse occurs. The moon does not entirely hide the sun during an annular solar Eclipse, leaving a bright ring of sunlight visible. According to NASA, an annular can only happen under certain circumstances.

The moon must be in its first lunar phase and farther away from Earth in its elliptical orbit, making it appear smaller in the sky than usual because the moon seems smaller in these conditions. It cannot wholly hideout the sun, resulting in a ring of fire or circle of light. NASA said, “As the pair rises higher in the sky, the silhouette of the Moon will gradually shift off the sun to the lower left, allowing more of the Sun to show until the Eclipse ends.”

The event will occur on Thursday, June 10, at 6:53 a.m. ET, when it will obscure the sun. Look to the east to view it. In Canada, Greenland, the Arctic Ocean, and Siberia, the Eclipse narrow path will be obvious. It will be partially visible for much of the rest of Greenland, Northern Europe, northeastern North America, and northern Asia.
