On October 14th, 2023, North America will get to witness the amazing spectacle that is an annular solar eclipse. This kind of eclipse is also known as a "ring of fire" eclipse due to the fact that the moon does not fully cover the sun, giving it a fiery outline.

According to NASA, this is the last visible annular solar eclipse that will be visible in the U.S. until June 21, 2039.

Where Will It Be Visible?

Although this eclipse will be partially visible in 48 states throughout the U.S., only a handful of states will be able to view this eclipse in its entirety. The states that this eclipse will be passing through include Oregon, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and Texas. The eclipse in the U.S. will start on the West Coast, working its way east through the U.S.

Although the eclipse can be seen in Texas, not all parts of Texas will be able to see this eclipse in its entirety. Thankfully this map which can be found through NASA's website, provides Texas residents with all the info needed to determine how this year's solar eclipse will look from where viewers are.


According to this map, major Texas cities that will be able to view the full solar eclipse include Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Kerrville, and Midland. Although the cities listed in the zone will be able to view a complete annular eclipse, the rest of Texas will still be able to partially see this eclipse.
