An annular eclipse of the sun what some are calling a ring of fire eclipse will take place over Australia and the Pacific Ocean on May 9 or 10, 2013 (the difference in date depends on whether you are east or west of the International Date Line). However, to see it, you have to reside somewhere along the long yet narrow track that is 13,300 kilometers long and only about 200 kilometers wide. Outside the extremely narrow path of the ring of fire eclipse, a much larger area of the world will get to see a partial eclipse of the sun.
