Interpreting Eclipses

Sol, our glorious star and Luna, Earth’s constant companion will be having quite a big year between the morning of October 14, 2023, and afternoon of April 8th, 2024. An annular eclipse or Ring of Fire eclipse will take place on the morning of October 14, 2023, leaving the Earth bathed in sunrise colors with an orange ring surrounding the Moon while it crosses the surface of the Sun. The following Spring in the afternoon of April 8th, 2024, darkness will envelope the Earth for a few minutes leaving the corona of the Sun visible while the Moon blocks the entire solar surface. The dance between the Sun, Moon, and Earth will leave all that witness these events spellbound at the connections for all life on Earth to the solar system beyond.
