The Farmington Museum is throwing a Annular Eclipse Stellar Party! YES, we will have a limited amount of SAFE eclipse viewing glasses AND a lot of fun activities to go along with it. New Mexico Yo-Yo String Slinger, Luke Renner, will hold a Yo-Down Show-Down from 1:00pm-3:00pm.
What’s an Annular Eclipse???? An annular solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth while it is at its farthest point from Earth. Because the Moon is farther away from Earth, it appears smaller than the Sun and does not completely cover the star. This creates a “ring of fire” effect in the sky.
- Partial eclipse begin: 9:13am
- Annularity begins 10:34am
- Maximum 10:35am
- Annularity ends 10:39am
- Partial eclipse ends 12:09pm
The Fine Print:
The Sun is never completely blocked by the Moon during an annular solar eclipse. Therefore, during an annular eclipse, it is never safe to look directly at the Sun without specialized eye protection designed for solar viewing. Viewing any part of the bright Sun through a camera lens, binoculars, or a telescope without a special-purpose solar filter secured over the front of the optics will instantly cause severe eye injury. For more information, phone 505-599-1425.
