The Annular solar eclipses will be shown on the U.S. map on October 14, 2023. According to NASA, this is the last annular solar eclipse until June 21, 2039.

Annular solar eclipses will happen when the moon passes between the Sun and Earth while the Moon is at the farthest point from Earth. The Moon will partially block the sun creating a “ring of fire” and the moon will pass completely over the sun at 1 and 5 minutes after the partial eclipse phase begins.

The whole process of the moon’s movement will take 1 hour and 20 minutes. The most visible solar eclipses in the U.S. are from Oregon down to Texas, Central America, and Northern South America which will see a total eclipse. Residents of the Northeast and Southwest will see a partial eclipse respectively.

The solar eclipse will start in Oregon at 9:13 p.m. It will pass through Texas at 12:03 p.m.(CDT) and keep moving to Central America until too tired of the sun setting in the Atlantic Ocean.

If you are planning to watch the eclipse, you should wear protective glasses to protect your eyes from the sun directly. Just the thin light of the silver lining of the sun from the moon’s activity can damage your eye retina permanently.
