This animated map shows the path of the annular-total solar eclipse (also called a hybrid solar eclipse). It begins as an annular eclipse, as the Sun's apparent disk is just larger than the Moon's disk and the Sun appears as a thin brilliant ring. Soon after sunrise in the western Atlantic Ocean, the eclipse transitions to a narrow total solar eclipse. During totality, the Sun's corona will be briefly visible with a duration ranging from a few seconds to about a minute and 40 seconds at the point of greatest eclipse. A thin belt of Africa from Gabon to Somalia is the only locale on land where totality can be observed.
