On October 14, 2023, an annular, or "ring of fire," solar eclipse will trace a narrow path of annularity across eight U.S. states. To experience the annular, or "ring of fire," phase of the 2023 eclipse, you must be located within the narrow path of annularity. Remember that since the Moon never entirely covers the Sun during an annular, or "ring of fire," solar eclipse, you must
use special eclipse safety glasses or viewers at all
times. Unlike during a total solar eclipse, there is never
a time when it's safe to look with unprotected eyes.
The centerline of the eclipse enters Texas at approximately 10:17am CDT, with annularity beginning in that location at about 11:41am CDT. After entering the U.S. in Oregon and traveling approximately 1,375 miles along the centerline in about 25 minutes and 26 seconds at an average speed of 3,245 miles per hour, the Moon's shadow begins the last leg of its journey across America. And with a centerline track of 494 miles, this last leg in Texas is also the longest leg in America, accounting for more than a quarter of the path's total length in the United States.
