The Eclipse

(from Wikipedia)
An annular
solar eclipse will take place on May 20, 2012 (May 21, 2012 for local time in Eastern Hemisphere),
with a magnitude of 0.9439. A
solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally
or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's
apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun, causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring), blocking most of the Sun's light.
An annular eclipse appears as a partial eclipse over a region thousands of kilometres wide.The annular phase will be visible
from the Chinese coast, the south of
Japan, and the western part of the United States and Canada. Guangzhou, Tokyo and
Albuquerque
will be on the central path. Kanarraville, Utah will be a perfect place to view the annular phase. Its maximum
will occur in the
North Pacific, south of the Aleutian islands for 5 min and 46.3 s, and finish in the western United States.
