There’s going to be an annular solar eclipse on Feb. 26, 2017. Although this month’s eclipse is not visible in the United States, it’s kicking off the six-month countdown until the total solar eclipse on Aug. 21, the first visible in the US since 1979. So what’s an annular solar eclipse? When the Moon covers the Sun’s center, leaving the Sun’s visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire”, or annulus around the Moon, an annular solar eclipse happens. An annular solar eclipse occur only:
– Around a new Moon when the Earth and Sun are aligned on opposite sides of the Moon.
– The Moon and Sun must be near a lunar node forming an almost perfect line between the Sun, the Moon, and Earth.
This annular solar eclipse is located in Aquarius Constellation. But, due to precession of the equinoxes, the eclipse actually falls within the Pisces sign. Dominated by the spiritual planet Neptune, this particular eclipse can bring good fortune, and lasting happiness. CONTINUE
