WE RECOMMEND YOU: Solar Eclipse 2023: Time when it will reach its peak in CDMX

To connect you can do so at, the phenomenon can be seen from part of United States Mexico and some sites in South America.

Ring of Fire

Sky watchers have been summoned to an astronomical event this Saturday: an annular eclipse of the Sun that will allow them to observe a "ring of Fire" throughout the American continent.

This occurs when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth at its furthest point from our planet. Because it is so distant, it does not completely cover the Sun, creating an orange "ring of fire" effect.

In the United States, the most striking "path of annularity" will cross a handful of large cities and can be observed from eight states, such as California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico.

It will be visible from 9:15 a.m. local time in the state of Oregon and will cross the American sky until appearing around 11:50 a.m. local time over southern Texas.

Partial phases of the eclipse They will last one or two hours before and after.

WE RECOMMEND YOU: Today is the solar eclipse and it dawns cloudy in CDMX. Will it be possible to see it?

It will be visible between 30 seconds and five minutes, depending on the observation location. However, NASA urges people to take preventative measures and wear sun-vision glasses, never regular sunglasses, to preserve their vision.

"DO NOT view the Sun through a camera lens, telescope, binoculars or any other optical device while wearing eclipse glasses or using a portable solar viewer; the concentrated solar rays will burn through the filter and cause serious eye injuries," he warned. The NASA.

In the United States, "more than 6.5 million people live under the path of the eclipse," Alex Lockwood of NASA explained at a press conference.

He eclipse will then cross Mexico and Central Americaand then enter South America through Colombia and northern Brazil before ending at sunset in the Atlantic Ocean.

The event also serves as a lead-in to a total eclipse that will occur in April 2024.

Both eclipses will be "absolutely stunning for science," said Madhulika Guhathakurta, a scientist with the heliophysics program.

Solar eclipses have a noticeable effect on the upper atmosphere, as well as the ionosphere, which is full of charged particles and responsible for reflecting and refracting radio waves.

"Although the atmospheric effects of solar eclipses have been studied for more than 50 years, many questions remain unanswered," Guhathakurta said.

To study these effects, NASA will launch three rockets from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico to collect information on electric and magnetic fields, electron density, and temperature.

A total eclipse occurred in 2017 in the United States. After the total eclipse next April, the next one will occur in 2044, while the next annular eclipse will be in 2046.

Another total eclipse will also be visible in Spain in August 2026.

The Sun is about 400 times larger than the Moon, but it is also 400 times farther away. For this reason, both stars appear to be of similar size when observed from Earth.
