How To View The ‘Ring Of Fire’ Eclipse In Michigan
The annular eclipse will take place early Thursday morning, and will be partly visible from Michigan, weather permitting.
The full eclipse will begin on June 10 at 5:49am and last for three minutes and 51 seconds. The entire eclipse will take about 100 minutes to unfold.
Here in the Mitten State, we will get only a partial eclipse rather than the entire, dramatic 'Ring of Fire' that can be seen in more northerly locales.
The best viewing tip for those of us here in Michigan, is to try and get a clear view of the horizon as the sun rises that morning. Remember, staring into the sun is just dumb, so wear welder's glasses, or fashion a pinhole viewer, and project the eclipse onto a piece of cardboard or a sheet of paper.
The partial eclipse will be visible, barring heavy cloud cover from sunrise at 5:49am until 9:11am.
In the United States, the partial eclipse will be visible along parts of the Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, and in Northern Alaska. In many of these locations, the eclipse will occur before, during, and shortly after sunrise. This means that viewers will need to get a clear view of the horizon during sunrise in order to see the eclipse.
This eclipse is the continuation of the super full moon and lunar eclipse in Sagittarius that occurred on May 26. That eclipse brought certain things to a culmination in a certain area of our lives, the area of our charts ruled by Sagittarius. Now, this solar eclipse brings a new beginning in the area of our charts ruled by Gemini.
Got that? Good. Now explain it to me, because I'm not sure what's happening.
