On October 14, an annular solar eclipse will emerge in the skies over North, Central, and South America.
A unique spectacle for those in its path and a once-in-a-lifetime chance for scientists.
Peg Luce, acting director of the Heliophysics Division at NASA headquarters, stated that millions of people will be able to experience.
"The awe and wonder of seeing a beautiful ring of fire eclipse" as a result of the spectacular celestial event.
The term "ring of fire" refers to annular solar eclipses, which resemble total solar eclipses.
But can't totally cover the sun since they occur when the moon is at its furthest point from Earth in its orbit.
Instead, the so-called ring of fire is actually the sun's flaming light around the moon's shadow.
From the Oregon coast to Texas' Gulf Coast, the annular solar eclipse will be visible in Oregon, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and Texas.
