The Eclipse experience
To witness any type of eclipse is spectacular and Mother Nature doesn’t disappoint in her awesome beauty and wonder of this natural phenomenon. An annular eclipse gives the look of a ring of sunlight around the solar disc, yet a total solar eclipse is a dramatic showpiece as the earth plunges into darkness. You can be guaranteed of one thing - both types never disappoint!
