Solar eclipse of october 14 2023

An annular solar eclipse will occur on October 14, 2023. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun's, blocking most of the Sun's light and causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring). An annular eclipse appears as a partial eclipse over a region of the Earth thousands of kilometres wide. This will be the second annular eclipse visible from Albuquerque in 11 years, where it crosses the path of the May 2012 eclipse.
