HERMISTON– An annular solar eclipse will be visible to Oregonians on Saturday, Oct. 14, starting around 8 a.m.

According to NASA, 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 sun, causing it to leave what looks like a “ring of fire” in the sky.
