Witness the Spectacle: The Annular Solar Eclipse of October 14, 2023
Sep 30, 2023
On October 14, 2023, the skies will grace us with a breathtaking annular solar eclipse, a celestial event where the Moon covers the center of the Sun, leaving its outer edges visible and creating a mesmerizing "ring of fire." This eclipse is the second of three notable solar eclipses viewable from the USA, following the 'Great American' total eclipse of August 2017 and preceding the Mexico-US-Canada total eclipse of April 2024.
During an annular solar eclipse, the Moon's apparent size is slightly smaller than the Sun's, allowing only the outer edge of the Sun to remain visible. This creates the striking sight of the Sun appearing as a brilliant ring, often referred to as the “ring of fire.”
Where and When to View:
The path of this annular solar eclipse will traverse the United States from Oregon to Texas, beginning in Oregon at 9:13 a.m. PDT and concluding in Texas at 12:03 p.m. CDT. After crossing the United States, the eclipse will continue over Central and South America, concluding in the Atlantic Ocean at sunset.
Here are some key locations and times in the United States where the eclipse will be visible:
- Oregon Dunes, Oregon: 9:15 am PDT, Duration: 4 minutes, 29 seconds.

Viewing a solar eclipse requires special precautions to protect your eyes. It is crucial to use solar eclipse glasses that are CE and ISO-certified, like ours, to ensure your eyes are shielded from harmful rays. Regular sunglasses, no matter how dark, are not sufficient to protect your eyes during an eclipse.
