On May 20, 2012, an annular solar eclipse will pass over the western United States. This video is an animated map showing the path of the eclipse over Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. If you are within this pass, you will see the moon slide fully in front of the sun. During an annular solar eclipse, the moon's disk is just smaller than the sun and is sometimes called a "Ring of Fire" eclipse. It will be a spectacular sight, but you must use either solar filters or a projection system to watch it safely. More maps of this eclipse are available at eclipse-maps.com
