The partial “Ring of Fire” annular solar eclipse was seen in Kent and Des Moines on Saturday morning, Oct. 14, 2023.
It would only reach 80% coverage in the greater Seattle area.
According to Patrick Koehn, NASA heliophysicist, the moon passed in front of the sun and darkened the Pacific Northwest skies between 8:07 a.m. and 10:39 a.m., with maximum coverage at 9:20 a.m.
