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 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.
