On February 16, 2045, an annular, or "ring of fire," solar eclipse will occur in New Zealand and the Pacific. In the Pacific, the path of annularity will cross over the Cook Islands. In the U.S., a partial solar eclipse will occur in all or parts of Arizona, California, Hawaii, and Nevada. The maximum duration of annularity for this eclipse will be 7 minutes and 47 seconds. The map below shows the path of annularity over New Zealand. To experience the annular, or "ring of fire," phase of the eclipse, you must be located within the path of annularity represented on the map below. Areas outside the path of annularity will get a partial solar eclipse only.
