Today, the global annular eclipse will occur, which means a partial eclipse will be visible to the islands in the Caribbean, including Antigua and Barbuda.
The popular website for time and time zones, timeanddate.com, has compiled a list of varying times for many countries, including those in the Caribbean when the partial eclipse is expected to be visible.
Some Caribbean countries have already issued information on the celestial event.
The Ministry of Education, Culture, Science, and Technology in Belize has confirmed that the entire country will have the chance to observe the eclipse. However, the full Annular Eclipse will only be viewable in certain regions.
If you want to observe the eclipse, you must use certified eclipse glasses to avoid any harm, as regular sunglasses won’t cut it for eclipse viewing. Safe solar viewing glasses, or “eclipse glasses” are recommended by experts.
NASA confirms that on Saturday, October 14, 2023, the annular solar eclipse will cross North, Central, and South America.
It will be visible in parts of the United States, Mexico, and many countries in South and Central America.
The annular solar eclipse begins in Oregon at 9:13 am PDT and ends in Texas at 12:03 p.m. CDT.
The path of the annular solar eclipse will visit Mexico and Central America, passing over Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.
The annular eclipse also crosses into South America in Colombia and passes over Northern Brazil before ending at sunset in the Atlantic Ocean.
Please remember that you should not try to look directly at the sun for this event as it can damage your eyes. Keep in mind the safe solar viewing glasses, or “eclipse glasses” to fully enjoy this celestial event.
