Right now we are getting ready for the coming annual solar eclipse due to be completely visible from the United States later, Saturday, October 14, in a few hours–starting first in the northeastern Pacific Ocean under Alaska with the direct path centered on the states starting in Oregon, then proceeding into the following states: California, Nevada, only the tip of southwestern Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and finally Texas–as it moves southeasterly into the Gulf of Mexico; then down into Mexico near the Yucatan Peninsula, then Honduras, Nicaragua, the Caribbean Sea, and also Costa Rica Puerto (the epicenter of the whole event is east of Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica in the Caribbean) and Panama, as it enters the South American countries of Columbia and finally Brazil; as it goes into the western Atlantic to fizzle into an ending right in the middle It sweep of partiality goes with a sweep starting at Alaska all the way over to several coastal African countries including Senegal and Guinea. This is the last solar eclipse for this year of 2023. An annular eclipse happens when the Moon is too far from Earth that the disk diameter is smaller than that of the Sun, so that a total shadow cannot happen and the whole outer edge of sunlight completely is left exposed around the center shadowed area of the Sun. Therefore, true umbra never happens completely. It is also important to note that as much has viewing the eclipse is tempting, it is very dangerous to even try or attempt to view the eclipse at any point without the proper equipment. Also, be sure that if you purchased a pair of glasses that were sold in 2017, that if a danger notice was declared on the set of glasses, to not use them!! Your eyes are precious, please don’t harm your eyes to view this!

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 – Oct 28th, 2023
