Tabasqueños of all ages gathered on the esplanade of the Tabasco Planetarium 2000 to observe the annular solar eclipse, a natural phenomenon that has not occurred in a similar way in Mexico since 1991.

Miriam Velázquez Aquino, representative of the Science and Technology Council of the State of Tabasco, pointed out that In this entity the sun would be covered by 82 percent this Saturday.

In the state of Tabasco, 20 observation headquarters were installed; One of the busiest was the Planetarium in the city of Villahermosa, where long lines of entire families formed who came to observe this wonderful phenomenon.

What is an annular solar eclipse?

An annular solar eclipse is a type of solar eclipse in which the Moon passes in front of the Sun, but does not completely cover the solar disk. Instead, the Moon is in its furthest orbit from Earth, making it appear slightly smaller in the sky. As a result, when the Moon comes between the Earth and the Sun, it fails to completely cover the solar disk, leaving a bright ring of sunlight around the Moon. This luminous ring is known as the "ring of fire" or "diamond ring" and is a distinctive feature of annular solar eclipses.

Annular solar eclipses are less common than total solar eclipses, in which the Moon completely covers the solar disk. To observe an annular solar eclipse, specific conditions are required in terms of the relative position of the Earth, Moon and Sun, making these events less frequent.

Do not observe it without protection

Direct viewing of a solar eclipse, whether total or annular, can be hazardous to your eyesight without proper protective equipment, such as certified solar eclipse glasses or safe solar screening. Looking directly at the Sun during an eclipse without protection can cause serious eye damage.
