Since 1994, the event will be for first time in past 18 years that an annular solar eclipse will be seen in this weekend by millions of people in Southeast Asia and the western U.S. up to 4.5 minutes.

“Because some of the sun is always exposed during the eclipse, ambient daylight won’t seem much different than usual,” NASA Science‘s Tony Phillips said.

“Instead, the event will reveal itself in the shadows. Look on the ground beneath leafy trees for crescent-shaped sunbeams and rings of light”, he added.
