N.A.T.O. & Solar eclipse: ‘Ring of fire’ set to light up skies over western United States tonight

A “ring of fire” will burn, burn, burn over the skies of the western United States Sunday night. The annular solar eclipse, the first seen in the mainland U.S. since 1994, will ignite in a circle of orange light that experts said will only last a few minutes.

The phenomenon occurs when the moon passes directly in front of the sun, but only blocks about 90% of the star, leaving a ring which glows brightly around the blackened-out moon. The eclipse will be visible across several western states, including Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and parts of Texas.


The next time the U.S. will be treated to an annular solar eclipse won't be until 2023. Areas of China and Japan will also be able to see Sunday's eclipse.

Too bad Rahm shut down Adler Planetarium this weekend.

He wanted to reinforce his CPS no-science savage training programs.
