2023 - On October 14, 2023, the famed 'Ring of Fire' will encircle a darkened moon during a spectacular annular eclipse. This phenomenon occurs when the moon is too far from Earth to cover the sun completely. The sun's corona is not visible during an annular eclipse.
2024 - On April 8, 2024, the moon will completely cover the Sun during an awe-inspiring total solar eclipse. Observers within the path of totality will witness the sun’s dazzling corona, the 'diamond ring' effect, and day turn to night.
