Next Solar Eclipse: Ring of Fire on May 20, 2012

An annular solar eclipse will grace the afternoon and early evening skies this Sunday (May 20), offering up a spectacular site for those lucky enough to see it.

β€œA solar eclipse occurs when the moon gets directly between Earth and the sun. Sunday’s event will be an partial solar eclipse across most of the United States and Canada, and a more compelling annular solar eclipse for a narrow swath of residents in the West and Southwest. The sun sets before any of it will be visible from the East Coast, however.”
