Annular solar eclipse to be visible in California, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and the Gulf of Mexico

What is an annular solar eclipse and where can I watch it?

Here are some images arriving over the news wires.

Bill Nelson, the Nasa administrator and a former astronaut, has just been on Nasa TV to talk about the “unique opportunities” eclipses give to study the sun.

What we learn from these eclipses, along with our heliophysics research, has incredible benefits for our human exploration. The sun is a powerful hot, glowing ball of hydrogen and helium, and it actually holds together the entire solar system.

Without its energy we couldn’t exist here on Earth. Just think. It influences everything we do on Earth: growing crops, our economics. It even affects our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. We see its influence in our cultures, in our music, religion, sports.
