June 13, 2021: "Ring of Fire" Annular Solar Eclipse
Credit & Copyright: Derek Steen from Nazareth, Pennsylvania "Ring of Fire" Annular Solar Eclipse:"I contemplated viewing the eclipse from a few places in the Lehigh Valley. Due to the angle of the sunrise, I thought a vantage point from Lehigh University would allow the sun to rise behind the SteelStacks in Bethlehem. However, I couldn't prove that perspective would be possible, so I stuck with the tried and true Nazareth Borough Park — which has an unobstructed view of the entire eastern horizon.
The eclipse was already in effect as the sun rose. What a treat! It went behind the clouds and, once it emerged again (12º), the eclipse was over."
