RITZVILLE – As the sun is climbing into the sky Saturday, Oct. 14, the morning will darken as the annual eclipse takes place.
The annular eclipse is set to begin locally at about 8:08 a.m. and end about 10:43 a.m.
The maximum eclipse – about 83.3% here – occurs at about 9:22.
Weather permitting, Adams County residents can watch the moon pass in front of the sun, blocking out most of the sunlight.
The 2-hour, 35-minute event is different than a total solar eclipse, in that the moon won't completely cover the sun.
Those watching the eclipse will see a crescent-shaped sun at maximum pass...
