The Annular Eclipse is Almost Here!

An annular solar eclipse is not the same thing as a total eclipse. You must protect your eyes from injury during the entire eclipse, since the moon does not fully block the surface of the sun from view!

This Saturday's eclipse will be at least partially visible from all the lower 48 states in the U.S. However, weather may be a factor in some parts of the country.

If you are in the Northwest or Southwest, or are traveling there for the annular eclipse, chances are good that you will have excellent viewing conditions, but some parts of the country will likely have rain and cloud cover during the event. No matter where you plan to be during the eclipse, check the local weather forecast for the area.
