Solar Eclipse Sunday May 20: Ring of Fire
An annular solar eclipse can be seen this weekend on Sunday, May 20, 2012. CAUTION - Do not look directly at a solar eclipse without a proper filter! Annular eclipses can be dangerous to your eyes.
Because the solar eclipse will block out most of the sun, a spectacular “ring of fire” will be seen in the sky.
Information on how to view a solar eclipse safely from the Exploratorium: Remember never view the sun with the naked eye or with any optical device, such as binoculars or a telescope! Click here for instructions.
