You probably know better than to look at the Sun, but it’s worth finding a safe way to view it before Thursday, June 10.

That’s when you’ll be able to see a rare annular eclipse in parts of North America.


June 10 marks the first solar eclipse of any kind viewable in North America since 2017. The fact that it’s also an annular eclipse makes it worth the wait.
