Dr. Kent Montgomery, head of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Texas A&M-Commerce, says the annular solar eclipsethat occurs between about 3 and 8 a.m. Thursday (June 10) will not be visible in Northeast Texas, except via television or streaming video.  It will be visible to the eye in parts of Canada, Russia and Greenland.  We also discuss the summer solstice and the Strawberry Super Moon of June 24.
