Reno, NV - We just happened to be geographically located at the right spot to get a glimpse of that rare vision. That's why so many people packed a viewing party at UNR's Redfield Campus. Many people traveled over from California. But some came as far as Australia to watch the annular solar eclipse, which looked like a ring of fire in the sky. As the moon passed in front of the sun, from 6:28pm until 6:33pm.

"The greatest trip was just seeing the little ring that the moon made over the sun," said Terry Kahl, who came to Reno from San Jose, just to see the annular eclipse.

Since you can't look directly at the sun, p eople had to wear special glasses or make contraptions to see the annular solar eclipse. Experts say we won't get to see another one of these in Northern Nevada until the year 2045.
