Ring of fire: Eclipse shadows area

May 21, 2012

West Texas residents got a celestial treat late Sunday evening as an annular solar eclipse created a ring of fire in the sky that could be seen all over the Panhandle Region.

According to scientists, the next annular solar eclipse visible in the United States won’t be seen until 2023.

Hundreds of Crossroads residents lined the mountainside street at the Big Spring State Park’s Scenic Mountain to watch the eclipse. Many called the spectacle a “once in a lifetime event,” spending time with loved ones.
