Find out more about Thursday's annular solar from this article:
You'll see that New Mexico is nowhere near being able to observe it in the sky, but it can be watched on several webcasts at these links:
NASA TV (Starts @ 3 a.m. MDT) -
Time & Date -
Virtual Telescope -
Royal Observatory, Greenwich -
Check out the links now to see the time of their broadcasts. Even though it's a solar eclipse, most of the videos start very early in the morning when it's still dark in New Mexico. Some will have informative commentary while others may just have music or no audio. Weather at the locations of the telescopes will also affect the programs.
Although we won't be able to see this week's eclipse in person from NM, we will be able to see one just like it in two years, and Albuquerque, along with some other locations along a relatively narrow track across the southwest, will be in the perfect places. This annular eclipse will be on October 14, 2023, which should also be the final Saturday of Balloon Fiesta that year! Get a preview here: https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/usa/albuquerque…
