On October 3, 2043, an annular, or "ring of fire," solar eclipse will occur in the Southern Ocean. This will be a rare non-central annular solar eclipse, in which the centerline of annularity doesn't intersect with the surface of the Earth. The eclipse does not cross over any land. The map below shows the path of annularity over the Southern Ocean. 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.
