Get Ready for the Solar Eclipse

The 2023 solar eclipse is passing over the United States this year, giving millions of Americans in the northwest the chance to catch a glimpse of the “ring of fire.” That’s the kind of eclipse where the moon passes in front of the sun but leaves space for a small ring of light to be seen. The eclipse will occur on October 14th from 9:13 a.m. PDT in Oregon and ends at 12:03 p.m. CDT in Texas. It will pass through Texas, Nevada, California and Oregon. Unfortunately for the rest of the United States and all of Europe, this eclipse will be beyond them. While the sky might dim and the temperature drop, the only way to actually see the difference in the light of the sun during an eclipse is by wearing 3D glasses from a movie theater. If you're not in an area where the eclipse can be seen, you can watch it live on NASA's website.
