Annular Eclipse of the Sun


Thursday, June 10, 2021: Annular Eclipse of the Sun

This eclipse is visible from northern and northeastern North America, beginning at 4:12 AM EDT and ending at 9:11 AM EDT. The time of maximum eclipse varies by location. Note that this is an annular eclipse; the Moon will never fully obscure the visible surface of the Sun—at maximum eclipse, an “annulus” (ring) around the Sun will still be visible. It is safe to view this eclipse only when using eye protection such as “eclipse glasses” or a solar filter.
