Right now we are getting ready for the coming “Ningaloo Eclipse” a rare hybrid solar eclipse in the southern hemisphere, of which will be visible near Indonesia, Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the south Pacific–with areas of partiality visible from the southern Pacific, southeast Asia, East Indies, Australia, Philippines. New Zealand–later, Thursday, April 20, in a few hours. This is the first solar eclipse for this year, in 2023. It will be considered a hybrid solar eclipse because the eclipse looks like annular or a total depending on the observer’s location along the central eclipse path. What makes the rare occasion even more spectacular, is the effect of the Earth’s curvature brings some sections of the eclipse path into the Moon’s umbra, the darkest part of its shadow that creates total solar eclipses, while other areas will remain outside the umbra’s reach, causing an annular eclipse. The path of this hybrid solar eclipse is not visible at all from anywhere near the United States.

In any solar eclipse, using sunglasses, welding glasses are not rated for viewing. Care for your eyes. Resist the temptation for direct viewing of any annular, partial or total eclipse while not completely blocked by the shadow of the Sun!

An Eclipse Never Comes Alone!
A lunar eclipse always occurs about two weeks before or after a solar eclipse.
See you in two weeks: Lunar Eclipse – May 5th, 2023
