An annular solar eclipse will occur on October 14th, and will be visible from North, Central and South America. This is when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, when the Moon is at or near the farthest point from Earth – making the Moon appear smaller than the Sun and creating a bright ring around the Moon.

A penumbral lunar eclipse — when the Moon moves through the penumbra, the outer, faint part of Earth’s shadow — will occur on May 5 for those living in Africa, Asia and Australia.

On October 28, a partial lunar eclipse will be visible to people in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, parts of North America and most of South America. It’s when the Sun, Earth and Moon don’t line up completely, so only part of the Moon passes into shadow.
