Local view of yesterday’s solar eclipse

Mike Jones kindly shared this photo of yesterday’s annular solar eclipse taken at Southern Arkansas University. The eclipse was seen from the United States all the way across the Pacific Ocean into Asia.

Arkansas residents were only able to see what the photo above shows: A portion of the moon blotting out the sun. But for those farther west, the moon almost completely covered the sun, leaving only a bright ring of light shining around the sun.

Magnolia residents will have to wait a couple of years for their next chance to see a solar eclipse. A partial eclipse will be visible on the evening of October 23, 2014.
