On 10 May 1994, an annular eclipse of the Sun will be widely visible from the Western Hemisphere. The Moon's anti-umbral shadow delineates a path through North America including northern Mexico, the American southwest and midwest, the southern Great Lakes region, New England and maritime Canada. The path crosses the North Atlantic where it sweeps over the Azores and ends at sunset in Morocco. From within the much broader path of the Moon's penumbral shadow, a partial eclipse will be seen from North American, eastern Siberia, western Europe and north Africa (Figures 1 and 2).
