Solar Eclipse 2016 Guide: When, Where & How to See It



On Sept. 1, the moon will pass in front of the sun, creating a brilliant ring of sunlight visible from areas around the southern Indian Ocean.

When the moon creates a ring of sunlight during an eclipse instead of completely blocking the solar disk, it's known as an annular eclipse or "ring of fire" eclipse. And although the Sept. 1 event won't be a total eclipse of the sun (or of the heart), it will still be a stunning sight leading up to another annular eclipse in February 2017 and the total solar eclipse in August 2017.

The best place to view the Sept. 1 annular eclipse will be southern Africa. About a 10-hour drive south of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, observers will find the best views of the eclipse, Pasachoff said. Viewers will be able to see the moon cross paths with the sun on Sept. 1 at 9:08 a.m. local time, which is 2:08 a.m. EDT (0608 GMT).


What causes an annular eclipse?


Solar eclipses occur when the moon comes between the Earth and the sun, lining up with the sun as seen by spectators on Earth. In a total solar eclipse, the moon lines up perfectly with the sun and blocks out all light. But in an annular eclipse, the moon doesn't completely cover the sun; this is possible because the orbits of both the Earth and the moon are elliptical (that is, not perfectly circular).

"Earth's orbit is a little elliptical, and the moon's orbit is a little more elliptical, so sometimes, [the moon is] a little further away from us than at other times," Pasachoff said. "When it's relatively far away, it's a little smaller in angle, and it's too small to cover the whole everyday solar disk."


As a result, the edges of the solar disk peek out from behind the shadow of the moon, leaving a ring of sunlight.


Every 18 months or so, there is one annular eclipse and one total solar eclipse somewhere on Earth. Eclipses don't occur every time the moon passes between the Earth and the sun because the moon's orbit is tilted about 5 degrees compared to the Earth's orbit around the sun. When the moon's shadow crosses the sun but its center doesn't align exactly with the center of the sun, it's known as a partial solar eclipse — when the moon sits either a little too high or too low to totally cover the sun.



When is the next eclipse?

Another annular solar eclipse will occur Feb. 26, 2017, with the point where the eclipse will appear to last the longest located off the eastern coast of South America. The next highly anticipated total solar eclipse, set to take place Aug. 21, 2017, is being called the "Great American Eclipse" because the best viewing locations will be within the continental U.S. For this event, Pasachoff said now is the time to make necessary travel plans and reservations if you want to observe the eclipse within the path of totality.
