Annular Solar Eclipse

On May 20, 2012, some North Americans will enjoy a very rare "annular solar eclipse".

Yes, that's "annular" not "annual". From the blog post author: "Annular eclipses are not nearly as spectacular as total eclipses, but this is all we are going to get for the next few years. The next total solar eclipse in North America is in 2017."
