Tomorrow’s Forecast: A Ring of Fire over the Ring of Fire?
This Annular Eclipse, which is already happening, will be visible in Manila tomorrow, Monday, May 21st between 4:56AM to 10:49AM, and is also being called the “ring of fire” which apparently will cast over parts of the Earth’s Northern Hemisphere in the Pacific Ring of Fire areas…
Say what?! Yeah. Cool noh?
Like total solar eclipses, annular solar eclipses are quite rare. They can only be observed during New Moon, when the Sun is near one of the nodes of the lunar orbit, so Earth, Sun and Moon form a straight line, the Moon is at apogee, and the observer is located in the path of the Moon’s antumbra.
I hope we’ll be able to see it. Most likely we won’t due to a very cloudy day :( If anyone feels “crap-tastic”, you can still blame the moon for some erratic emotional disheveling. Hehehe!
