[""!LIVESTREAM!""] Solar Eclipse 2023 on October 14 live Free Broadcast & On 13 October 2023

18 sec ago ~ On Saturday, Oct. 14, 2023, an annular solar eclipse will come to North America.

We have summarized how you can watch the annular solar eclipse 2023 online and NASA has also released an interactive map where you can track the Oct. 14 annular solar eclipse down to the last second. The 'ring of fire' is not to be missed! Roughly 11 years after the same type of solar eclipse crossed the U.S. Southwest on May 20, 2012, this one will be visible from a similar region, crossing eight U.S. states from Oregon to Texas, according to NASA. During an annular solar eclipse, the moon appears slightly smaller than the sun, so it can't block the entire disk. The result is a beautiful "ring of fire." Here's everything you need to know about this rare event. WHAT IS AN ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE? RELATED STORIES: — How to read and understand a solar eclipse map — How to photograph a solar eclipse — What's the difference between a total solar eclipse and an annular solar eclipse? This eclipse won't darken skies the way the total solar eclipse of Aug. 21, 2017, did. A solar eclipse occurs when a new moon is positioned precisely between Earth and the sun and casts its shadow on Earth. An annular solar eclipse happens when the moon appears relatively small in the sky so does not fully cover the disk of the sun, leaving a thin outer ring often called a "ring of fire." Whether the moon can completely cover the sun's disk depends on the moon's distance from Earth. The moon has a slightly elliptical orbit around Earth, so at two points each month, it is farthest (apogee) and closest (perigee) to Earth, making the moon appear slightly smaller and slightly larger than average in our sky. On Oct. 14, 2023, the new moon will look relatively small and, therefore, cover only 91% of the sun's disk as viewed from the narrow path of annularity that stretches from Oregon through Texas and beyond. On Oct. 14, 2023, all of North America and Central America, and most of South America will experience a solar eclipse. For all of that region, the spectacle will be a partial solar eclipse of varying obscuration. Only within the path of annularity, which is 118 to 137 miles (190 to 220 kilometers) wide, will the ring of fire be visible. That path will stretch from Oregon through northern California, northeast Nevada, central Utah, northeast Arizona, southwest Colorado, central New Mexico and southern Texas. It will then move across the Gulf of Mexico and over Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Brazil. The point of greatest eclipse — where viewers could see a ring of fire lasting 5 minutes, 17 seconds — will occur off the coast of Nicaragua and Costa Rica. To see the exact path of annularity, check out this interactive map created by French eclipse expert Xavier Jubier. WHERE TO SEE THE PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE Although the ring of fire will get a lot of attention, few people make much effort to travel to see an annular solar eclipse. After all, these events don't quite compare to total solar eclipses. On Oct. 14, 2023, most of the Americas will experience a big partial solar eclipse. Here is what the 10 biggest cities in the U.S. will experience that day; only one will see the ring of fire: New York: 23% at 1:22 p.m. EDT Los Angeles: 71% at 9:24 a.m. PDT Chicago: 43% at 11:58 a.m. CDT Houston: 85% at 11:58 a.m. CDT Phoenix: 79% at 9:31 a.m. MST Philadelphia: 25% at 1:21 p.m. EDT San Antonio: "Ring of fire" at 11:52 a.m. CDT San Diego: 68% a.m. at 9:26 PDT Dallas: 80% at 11:52 a.m. CDT San Jose, California: 75% at 9:20 a.m. PDT WHERE TO WATCH THE ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE "RING OF FIRE" IN NORTH AMERICA In Sept. 2023, it was announced that all Navajo Tribal Parks will be closed from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. MDT on October 14, 2023, due to Navajo cultural beliefs surrounding the event. This includes Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, Four Corners Monument Navajo Tribal Park and parts of the Tséyi’ Diné Heritage Area in Canyon de Chelly National Monument. Local businesses may also be closed. Please plan your eclipse viewing trip accordingly. The most scenic places to see the ring of fire are in the U.S. Southwest and at the Mayan temple at Edzná on Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. Here are some notable locations and cities that will see a ring of fire, together with the local time and duration of that event, according to Jubier. Note that all of these places will also see a long partial solar eclipse before and after the brief 'ring of fire; their closeness to the centerline of the path of annularity determines the duration of the ring of fire: Oregon Dunes, Oregon: 9:15 a.m. PDT; 4 minutes, 29 seconds Crater Lake National Park, Oregon: 9:17 a.m. PDT; 4 minutes, 19 seconds Lava Beds National Monument, California: 9:19 a.m. PDT; 54 seconds Great Basin National Park, Nevada: 9:24 a.m. PDT; 3 minutes, 46 seconds Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah: 10:27 a.m. MDT; 2 minutes, 31 seconds Capitol Reef National Park, Utah: 10:27 a.m. MDT; 4 minutes, 37 seconds Canyonlands National Park, Utah: 10:29 a.m. MDT; 2 minutes, 24 seconds Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah: 10:29 a.m. MDT; 4 minutes, 29 seconds Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado: 10:31 a.m. MDT; 2 minutes, 57 seconds Chaco Culture National Park, New Mexico: 10:32 a.m. MDT; 4 minutes, 42 seconds Albuquerque, New Mexico: 10:34 a.m. MDT; 4 minutes, 42 seconds San Antonio: 11:52 a.m. CDT; 4 minutes, 5 seconds Corpus Christi, Texas: 11:55 a.m. CDT; 4 minutes, 52 seconds Padre Island National Seashore, Texas: 11:56 a.m. CDT; 4 minutes, 52 seconds Edzná Maya archaeological site, Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico: 11:23 a.m. CST; 4 minutes, 32 seconds Although it's a great excuse to visit new places, the most important factor for eclipse viewing is clear weather. Check the climate and weather before you make a plan, and be prepared to change your location when the local short-term weather forecasts arrive.
