Oct 2023 Solar Eclipse - Full Eclipse/Saros 134


Viewed 250x Times

An annular solar eclipse occurred on October 14, 2023.[1][2][3][4][5] 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 or miles wide. Occurring only 4.6 days after apogee (Apogee on October 10, 2023), the Moon's apparent diameter was small.

This eclipse was visible in the American continent including the United States.
