Provo, UT, 17th July 2023 - With the October 14, 2023 solar eclipse less than 90 days away, Eclipse Glasses USA, a leading provider of ISO certified solar eclipse glasses, is excited to announce the unveiling of the most sought-after destinations for witnessing the breathtaking phenomenon of the October 2023 Annular Eclipse. As experts in solar events, we have curated a list of remarkable locations across the globe that offer optimal viewing conditions for this celestial spectacle.
Scheduled to occur on October 14, the October 2023 Annular Eclipse promises to be a visual marvel, the last western United States eclipse until 2045, captivating skywatchers with its celestial dance. During an annular eclipse, the Moon is closer to its maximum distance from Earth in its orbit. If an eclipse happens during this situation, the Moon will appear visually smaller than the Sun and its shadow cast will not be long enough to reach Earth.
