MUST SEE: Bizarre Ring Of Fire Eclipse Spotted In California


A rare “ring of fire” eclipse was spotted in the skies of California and other Western states over the weekend.

The eclipse was first spotted in Oregon but residents in San Diego got the best view of the rare eclipse

The ring of fire occurred when the moon crossed infant of the sun at just the right distance to cause a ring.

Take a look at the eclipse here:

 

Check out what CNN reported:

A rare celestial spectacle appeared over the Americas Saturday — the likes of which won’t be seen again in this part of the world until 2046.

Millions were within the path of the annular solar eclipse as it created a “ring of fire” in the sky over North, Central and South America.

The eclipse began in Oregon at 9:13 a.m. PT (12:13 p.m. ET). It is expected to end off the Atlantic coast of Brazil at 3:48 p.m. ET.

As it passed over city after city, the skies darkened as the moon moved in front of the sun, causing temperatures to drop.

Here’s what NBC San Diego reported:

San Diegans got the chance to experience a celestial phenomenon — at least in part — when an annular solar eclipse known as the “ring of fire” crossed the globe.

Tens of millions of skywatchers witnessed the annular eclipse — when the moon crosses in front of the sun at a distance that gives it a “ring” effect — on Oct. 14, 2023.

Here in San Diego, the sun was only about 70% obscured by the sun. It took nearly three hours for the moon to fully cross the path of the sun, with the eclipse reaching maximum coverage at about 9:26 a.m.
