An annular eclipse occurs when the moon doesn’t appear to entirely cover the face of the sun for earthly onlookers, but instead leaves something that looks like a cookie that has a bite taken out of it. The event was visible in a narrow area from Oregon, through Texas and down into Central America and Brazil. Solar eclipses take place around the world each year, but Young says they’re not always visible to everyone due to their shifting locations. Saturday marked Manitoba’s first partial solar eclipse since 2017, and another is due next April. Rob Lovatt at KeyWest Photo had his camera ready and took these shots.
