Annular Eclipse over Yucatan in Mexico 2023

7 October 2023 @ 08:00 - 23 October 2023 @ 17:00


In October 2023, the Moon will pass in front of the Sun’s disk – however, due to the position of both objects and their relative sizes, it will not be a total eclipse, but an annular one, during which 0.96 of our star’s disk will be covered at its maximum. However, this phenomenon will be visible from an unusual region – a world 1000 years ago inhabited by the Mayans, the creators of an unusual civilization. Therefore, I invite you to join me on a journey during which we will discover a lost civilization, wonderful nature and the colors of Mexico.

Hurry Up!
