Solar eclipse – level 3

18-10-2023 07:00

Thousands of people in the Americas witnessed an extraordinary event, an annular solar eclipse, where the Moon moves in front of the sun and creates a stunning ‘ring of fire’ in the sky.

Oscar Lopez, a 26-year-old from Mexico City, traveled to Campeche, Mexico, to witness the eclipse and described it as an amazing experience. NASA explained that the eclipse’s path spanned from the US Pacific Northwest to the Atlantic Ocean, passing over various countries in the Americas.

In Campeche, hundreds of spectators, including Isaac Solis, used sunglasses to observe the moon gradually crossing the morning sun.

Difficult words: annular (ring-shaped), span (to extend from side to side).
