It is possible to have a hybrid solar eclipse, a combination of two different solar eclipses. In case of Thursday’s hybrid eclipse will begin with the moon completely blocking out the sun, known as a total eclipse. Then it will transition into the moon, partially blocking out part of the sun, known as an annular eclipse. This will leave only a “ring of fire” visible in the sky.

Sadly, only people in the Southern Hemisphere can witness the show, which is projected to run for nearly two hours. On the other hand, spectators in North America can watch it online by tuning in to the live stream on NASA’s YouTube channel.

The eclipse is anticipated to begin at 9:34 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on April 19 and last until 2:59 a.m. on April 20. Thursday is the only day the eclipse is visible when measured by Universal Time (UTC).

Those unable to view this eclipse will take advantage of the year’s other opportunities to view total solar eclipses. NASA has prepared a list of forthcoming eclipses on its website that will continue at least through 2025.

One of these eclipses will be an annular solar eclipse, also known as a ring-shaped eclipse, on October 14, 2023. Another one will be a total solar eclipse, which will take place nearly a year from now, in April 2024.
