As the eagerly anticipated October 14, 2023 solar eclipse approaches, Eclipse Glasses USA, a leading provider of ISO certified solar eclipse glasses, is thrilled to unveil the most sought-after destinations for experiencing the awe-inspiring October 2023 Annular Eclipse. Drawing upon our expertise in solar events, we have curated a list of remarkable locations worldwide that offer optimal conditions for viewing this celestial phenomenon.
Scheduled to take place on October 14, the October 2023 Annular Eclipse promises to be a mesmerising visual spectacle, captivating skywatchers with its celestial dance. During an annular eclipse, the Moon is closer to its farthest point from Earth in its orbit, resulting in the Moon appearing smaller than the Sun and casting a shadow that does not fully reach Earth.
To assist enthusiasts in planning their eclipse adventure, we present the following top destinations:
- 9:09am MDT
Richfield, Utah: Blue Claim Hill – Scale Blue Claim Hill for unobstructed views of the eclipse. Located just outside a certified Dark Skies Monument, Richfield offers ideal conditions for observing the wonders of the day and night sky. Eclipse enthusiasts must visit this astronomical haven to experience the annular eclipse and immerse themselves in the magical splendour of the celestial realm.
- 9:13am MDT
Albuquerque, New Mexico: Petroglyph National Monument – This breathtaking location seamlessly blends natural beauty with optimal viewing conditions. The National Monument’s vast open vistas ensure uninterrupted views of the eclipse, free from obstructing trees. If you are unable to reach Petroglyph, venture south of Albuquerque to Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, a designated dark skies sanctuary. With its picturesque landscapes and clear skies, Albuquerque offers a backdrop of stunning scenery against which to witness the unforgettable celestial spectacle.
- 10:23am CDT
