The Great Annular Eclipse of 2023 with photographer and naturalist Rick Spitzer


September 27, 2023

Join photographer and naturalist Rick Spitzer and learn about the Great American Annular Eclipse of 2023.

This eclipse will cross the Western United States on Saturday, October 14th.

Seven states are on the path. The maximum eclipse will pass over the Four Corners of Colorado. Eagle County will view an 80% eclipse at 10:34 AM.

An Annular Solar Eclipse is not the same as a Total Eclipse. The moon travels in an elliptical orbit. When the Moon is closer to Earth in its orbit, a Total Eclipse may occur, and the entire sun is covered. When the moon is farther from Earth in its orbit, an Annular Eclipse may occur, and the entire sun is not covered.
