*** A great chance to see a fairly dramatic eclipse from theUSA ***

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_eclipse_of_May_20,_2012

An annular eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon are exactly in line,but the apparent size of the Moon is smaller than that of the Sun. Hence the Sun appears as a very bright ring, or annulus, surrounding the outline of the Moon.

The May 2012 annular phase will be visible from the Chinese coast, the south of Japan, and the western part of the United States and Canada. Guangzhou, Tokyo and Albuquerque will be on the central path.

Its maximum will occur in the North Pacific, south of the Aleutian islands for 5 min and 46.3 s, and finish in the western United States.

It will be the first central eclipse of the 21st centuryin the continental USA, and also the first annular eclipse there sincethe solar eclipse of May 10, 1994 which was also the previous eclipse of this series Solar Saros 128.
