If you live in the Western and Southwestern United States, southern China or Japan, go out and see the eclipse today. Viewers along the exact path of the eclipse will see an annular ring, meaning the moon will be centered on the sun but won’t appear big enough to cover the entire solar disk, leaving a ring of light around the shadow of the moon.

In the U.S., the eclipse will start around 5:15pm PST, reach a maximum around 6:30pm PST and end around 7:30pm PST. Here’s a link to Stardate.org, which has exact times and locations. Be patient with the server. They have heavy traffic today.

Or check this NASA Google Map. Clicking on the map will give you the exact times for that location.

Update: Link to the Stardate.org site is fixed.
