This rare solar eclipse switched between an annular and a total eclipse. A total eclipse occurs when the moon covers the sun completely. An annular eclipse occurs when the moon is at it's furthest distance from the Earth and in this case the moon doesn't completely cover the sun. In this case the start of the eclipse in the far west was an annular eclipse. The eclipse was first visible in the southern United States, before moving east across the Atlantic and then across Africa as we see in the animation.
