2023 ECLIPSE IN ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO

Albuquerque, New MexicoOn October 14, 2023, an annular, or "ring of fire," solar eclipse will occur in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Albuquerque, the second largest city along the eclipse path in the U.S., is perfectly positioned for the eclipse centerline to pass directly over it, resulting in durations of annularity that surpass the 4-minute mark all around the city. In downtown Albuquerque, the ring of fire will burn for about 4 minutes and 50 seconds, only about 12 seconds short of the eclipse maximum in the United States. The eclipse happens to coincide with Albuquerque's annual International Balloon Fiesta, all but guaranteeing that the city will be jam-packed with visitors on October 14. Below, we've provided key details about the eclipse in Albuquerque for locals and visitors planning on viewing the eclipse from that city.
