As the October 14 solar eclipse approaches, Eclipse Glasses USA, a reputable provider of ISO certified solar eclipse glasses, unveils a list of premier destinations for experiencing the awe-inspiring October 2023 Annular Eclipse.

The event, scheduled to occur in less than 90 days, is expected to be the last annular eclipse visible in the western United States until 2045, promising a celestial spectacle that will captivate skywatchers across the globe. Eclipse Glasses USA has put together a collection of locations offering optimal viewing conditions for the rare celestial dance.

The October 2023 Annular Eclipse is anticipated to be a visual marvel. During an annular eclipse, the Moon is closer to its maximum distance from Earth in its orbit; when an eclipse happens during this situation, the Moon will appear visually smaller than the Sun and its shadow cast will not be long enough to reach Earth.

For avid eclipse enthusiasts planning their celestial adventure, here are the top recommended destinations:

1. Richfield, Utah: Blue Claim Hill (Viewing Time: 9:09am MDT)
Position yourself atop Blue Claim Hill in Richfield, Utah, for unobstructed views of the annular eclipse. Renowned for its certified Dark Skies Monument, Richfield provides ideal conditions for day and night sky viewing. Embrace the magic of the astronomical haven and marvel at the wonders of the day and night sky during this breathtaking event.

2. Albuquerque, New Mexico: Petroglyph National Monument (Viewing Time: 9:13am MDT)
Experience the perfect blend of natural beauty and optimal viewing conditions at Petroglyph National Monument in Albuquerque, New Mexico. With vast open vistas and no trees to hinder your vision, this location promises an unforgettable spectacle against the backdrop of stunning scenery. Alternatively, head south of Albuquerque to Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, a designated dark skies sanctuary, for another exceptional viewing spot.

3. San Antonio, Texas: Medina Lake (Viewing Time: 10:23am CDT)
