This animation simulates the view from a spacecraft chasing the annular solar eclipse from an altitude of 125 miles! During this Ring of Fire eclipse, the Sun will appear as a dazzling thin ring.
Be sure to use eclipse glasses or another safe solar viewing method such as the #14 welders glass filters.
As the eclipse begins in the early morning in Oregon, the Moon’s shadow is elongated and traveling fast at 7000 miles per hour! After crossing California, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas, the annular solar eclipse proceeds to Central America and South America.
