October 3, 2005 — Annular Solar Eclipse — Madrid

Animation: How the Annular Solar Eclipse Looked

This annular solar eclipse was fully visible in Madrid. Observers there could experience the “ring of fire” that is characteristic for this kind of solar eclipse. This was a rare and spectacular event that could only be experienced along a relatively narrow strip on the Earth's surface. The eclipse was also visible in other areas, but the Moon did not move centrally in front of the Sun there and the “ring of fire” was not visible.
