There will be an annular eclipse of the sun this morning beginning at about 8:40 and lasting until about 11:30 o'clock. This will be quite an extensive eclipse, about seven digits of the sun's surface being in the shadow of this latitude. This will be a very interesting phenomenon and will be the only one of the kind until December 25, and smoked window glass should be provided for the proper study of the eclipse. It will be visible in all North America. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Neptune and Jupiter will be visible, nestled closely together in the west shortly after sunset. The phenomenon, it is declared, will not occur again in 100 years.
