This Saturday’s phenomenon (Oct 14) happens when the moon’s shadow does not completely cover the Sun and creates an “annulus” in the sky
A solar eclipse was seen in the sky over Brazil this Saturday afternoon (Oct 14, 2023). However, only the states of Amazonas, Pará, Maranhão, Piauí, Ceará, Tocantins, Rio Grande do Norte and Pernambuco were able to see the annularity band – when the Moon “copper” the Sun. The rest of the country had a partial view of the phenomenon, as expected by the National Observatory.
The astronomical phenomenon could be seen in Brazil from 3 pm. On social media, internet users shared records of the eclipse in their cities.
