NASA announces annular solar eclipse ‘Ring of Fire’ in US in October, Check details

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has announced an annular solar eclipse in the United States that will be seen on Oct 14.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, has some fantastic news for sky enthusiasts in the United States. On October 14, 2023, a special kind of solar eclipse, known as an “annular” eclipse, will be visible. This remarkable natural event has been nicknamed the “ring of fire” eclipse.

During this eclipse, the moon will move in front of the sun, partially covering it. Because the moon is a bit smaller than the sun, it will create a circular shape, like a ring of fire in the sky. This will be an amazing sight to see!

In a post on X, NASA wrote, “Save the date for a solar eclipse: On Oct. 14, a “ring of fire,” or annular, eclipse will travel from the U.S. Oregon coast to the Gulf of Mexico.”

NASA is making it even more exciting by providing live coverage of the eclipse. They’ll share the eclipse journey from the coast of Oregon in the north to the Gulf of Mexico in the south. You can watch it no matter where you are, thanks to NASA.

NASA will also have conversations with top scientists on the day of the eclipse. They’ll show views through telescopes from all across the US on their YouTube channel. Plus, you can ask questions and join the conversation using #askNASA.

But here’s an important note from NASA: Please don’t look directly at the eclipse! It’s not safe for your eyes. They recommend using special eye protection to watch the eclipse safely.

If you’re interested in watching this incredible event live, you can turn on the “Notify me” option on NASA’s YouTube channel. It’s going to be a sight you won’t want to miss!
