Annular Solar Eclipse Observed In California

A Navajo tribe wants to build a new tourist attraction in the Grand Canyon, but environmental groups and others are skeptical of the plan.

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, AZ – MAY 20: A view across the Grand Canyon during the first annular eclipse seen in the U.S. since 1994 on May 20, 2012 in Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. Differing from a total solar eclipse, the moon in an annular eclipse appears too small to cover the sun completely, leaving a ring of fire effect around the moon. The eclipse is casting a shallow path crossing the West from west Texas to Oregon then arcing across the northern Pacific Ocean to Tokyo, Japan. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
