Solar Eclipse June 10 2021

Just two weeks after a lunar eclipse, skywatchers are in for another treat in June: A "ring of fire" annular solar eclipse will be visible in parts of North America on June 10.

The path of the eclipse starts at sunrise in Ontario, Canada (on the north side of Lake Superior), then circles across the northern reaches of the globe, EarthSky's Bruce McClure said. "Midway along the path, the greatest eclipse occurs at local noon in northern Greenland and then swings by the Earth’s North Pole, and finally ends at sunset over northeastern Siberia," he said.

The full eclipse will last for roughly an hour and 40 minutes. No part of the U.S. will see the full eclipse.

While the U.S. will miss out on the "ring of fire" part of the eclipse, folks who live along the East Coast and in the Upper Midwest will get a chance to see a partial solar eclipse just after sunrise.

A partial solar eclipse looks like the sun has a bite or chunk taken out of it.

Where can you watch the partial eclipse?  

The most ideally situated metropolitan areas to view the partial eclipse at sunrise are Toronto, Philadelphia and New York, according to the Great American Eclipse website. 

"Along the Atlantic coast, the very best view of a deep partial solar eclipse will be from the beaches of New Jersey. Tall buildings in New York City with unobstructed views in the direction of the rising sun will also have a great view," the Great American Eclipse website said.
