Annular solar eclipse to take place October 14; NWSR has viewing tips

    (Statewide) – In anticipation of the October 14 annular solar eclipse, the National Weather Service in Riverton and meteorologist Chris Hattings have shared the following video with some viewing tips.

    The eclipse will begin around 9:10 AM, with the maximum eclipse occurring around 10:30 AM, and an end time of around noon.

    NASA explains that an annular solar eclipse “happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, but when it is at or near its farthest point from Earth. Because the Moon is farther away from Earth, it appears smaller than the Sun and does not completely cover the Sun.”


    While Fremont County isn’t anywhere close to the path of totality like it was in 2017, folks will see about a 75% eclipse.

    The full video is below.
