Annular Solar Eclipse in Southern Utah

Video: Annular Eclipse in Australia 2002

An annular solar eclipse will be occuring on May 20, 2012, and Southern Utah is the perfect location to experience this extraordinary phenomenon.  An annular eclipse occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun, completely blocking out the light except for a bright ring outlining the moon’s circumference.

Just 15 minutes south of Cedar City on I-15, the small town of Kanaraville lies in the sweet spot for viewing the eclipse.  Thousands of astronomical enthusiasts are expected to flood the area to be in the perfect line of sight for this once-in-a-lifetime event. 

If you want to see the perfect ring, don’t view this eclipse from any other location! Be sure to call ahead and book your room early to guarantee your spot.
