SAN ANTONIO – The annular solar eclipse carved a path through San Antonio, allowing viewers to witness the spectacular astronomical event.

The path also included the Hill Country, Pleasanton, Floresville, and other surrounding areas.

During the peak of the eclipse, viewers saw the “ring of fire” when the moon blocks all but the outside edges of the sun, which is known as annularity.

The partial eclipse began around 10:24 a.m., annularity started at 11:52 a.m., peaked at 11:54 a.m., and ended at 11:56 a.m.

The duration of annularity was only around 4 minutes in San Antonio. The entire eclipse event ended at 1:33 p.m.

Many viewers shared photos and videos of the different stages of the eclipse on KSAT Connect, shared below:
