A rare annular eclipse will occur on Sunday. About a 200-mile-wide path of the moon’s shadow will begin its journey in China at sunrise and race across the Pacific, reaching the rugged Northern California coastline centered near Eureka at 5:10 p.m. Sunday evening. The moon’s shadow will cross California in a diagonal, southwesterly line from Eureka along the coast to Redding in the northern Sacramento Valley, then on to Chico before heading into Nevada near Reno. The moon’s shadow will reach Texas right at about sunset and should produce some amazingly beautiful photographic opportunities.
