A Special Kind of Eclipse

When the Moon orbits between the Sun and Earth, a spectacular solar eclipse takes place, offering a breathtaking view of the Moon’s silhouette. On April 20th at 12:12am EDT, a new moon will rise and treat the world to a special and rare hybrid eclipse. The eclipse will start as an annular eclipse – when the moon appears smaller than the sun and results in a ring of sunlight visible around the moon – become a total eclipse, and then transition back into an annular eclipse.

While the eclipse will only be visible to those in Australia, Indonesia, Timor-Leste, and the eastern Indian Ocean, there are bound to be incredible photos that all can enjoy.
