While a solar eclipse is not a rare event, a perfect eclipse visible from our backyard is; where a portion of the sun's surface will be visible as a ring surrounding the dark moon. Reno and Albuquerque are the only two major cities in the U.S. that will be very near the narrow path of the annular eclipse.
The next annular eclipse viewable from North America will not appear for another 20 years, and the next total eclipse viewable from Northern Nevada will not occur until 2045! We will not miss this one.
