The 2028 Eclipse

The annular solar eclipse of 2028 January 26

· The Annular Solar Eclipse of 2028 Jan 26 will be visible from Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Suriname, Spain, and Portugal

· The annular solar eclipse of 2028 is the second longest annularity in the 21st century

· The maximum duration of annularity will be 10min 27sec and can be observed in Brazil

· The path of annularity covers approximately half of the whole Spanish area

· Sevilla and Cordoba are just under the centerline and Valencia is very close to this line

· It will be extraordinarily beautiful to observe the ring of fire from the Balearic Islands above the Mediterranean waters at sunset

· Annularity will happen in a very low altitude (less than 9° throughout Spain). A horizon free of buildings, trees, mountains etc., is essential to observe the totality

· Since the annular eclipse appears near the western horizon that would be a great chance to capture the ring of the sun next to the natural and architectural elements

·There won’t be any further annularity in Spain till 2059, in which only a very small part of Catalonia will visit the path of annularity

·This eclipse happens just six months after the total solar eclipse of 2027 august 2 in the south

· Some areas in the south including Malaga, Cadiz and Tarifa will visit booth total and annular eclipses within six months.
