In 2017 Nanette told my wife Missy about the upcoming total eclipse. Missy was determined not to miss it. She reserved a camp spot (in a cornfield) in Rexburg Idaho, loaded up our three kids, and went. Since then, Nanette’s family and my family have been looking forward to this upcoming annular eclipse. That year we passed out hundreds of glasses and ran out, so this year we bought more.
“An annular eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth at its farthest point…creating a ring of fire.”
Don’t miss out because this ring of fire eclipse won’t happen here for another 20 years. The map below shows in dark pink the best viewing area with a total annular (circle/ring) eclipse. The lighter peach area shows an 80% partial eclipse. All of Utah will be able to view a spectacular and rare sight.
