    If for some reason you were not able to see the annular eclipse of 2023, we have good news for you: in 2024 another astronomical phenomenon will be recorded again.

    This solar eclipse has unique characteristics that promise to make it an impressive spectacle. Coinciding with solar maximum, a period of high solar magnetic activity, viewers will be able to enjoy an enriched view of the Sun, adorned with prominences of pink hues and a more dynamic and extended solar corona. NASA indicated that the phenomenon will offer a more complex and vibrant panorama of the star, potentially accompanied by visible solar flares.
