With less than 90 days remaining until the highly anticipated October 14, 2023 solar eclipse, Eclipse Glasses USA, a leading provider of ISO certified solar eclipse glasses, is delighted to reveal the most sought-after destinations for witnessing the awe-inspiring phenomenon of the October 2023 Annular Eclipse. As experts in solar events, we have curated a list of exceptional locations across the globe that offer optimal viewing conditions for this celestial spectacle.
Scheduled to occur on October 14, the October 2023 Annular Eclipse promises to be a visual marvel, captivating skywatchers with its celestial dance. During an annular eclipse, the Moon appears visually smaller than the Sun due to its position closer to its maximum distance from Earth in its orbit. As a result, the shadow cast by the Moon does not reach Earth.
To assist enthusiasts in planning their eclipse adventure, we present the following top destinations:
- 9:09am MDT
Richfield, Utah: Blue Claim Hill – Ascend Blue Claim Hill for unobstructed views of the eclipse. Located just outside a certified Dark Skies Monument, Richfield boasts ideal viewing conditions for both day and night sky observations. This astronomical haven offers a must-visit experience for eclipse enthusiasts, where you can witness the annular eclipse while immersing yourself in the magical wonders of the celestial realm.
- 9:13am MDT
Albuquerque, New Mexico: Petroglyph National Monument – This breathtaking location combines natural beauty with optimal viewing conditions. The National Monument offers wide open vistas, ensuring an uninterrupted view of the eclipse. If you are unable to make it to Petroglyph, consider heading south of Albuquerque to Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, a dark skies sanctuary. With its picturesque landscapes and clear skies, Albuquerque promises an unforgettable spectacle against the backdrop of its stunning scenery.
