The upcoming solar eclipse this coming weekend should be visible from here in North America and all the way towards places in Asia.

Astronomers says the very best views of this "ring of fire", which happens to be the first solar eclipse since 1994, will be during the late hours of Sunday afternoon and evening in the Western U.S. and around dawn on Monday in several parts of China, ROC-Taiwan and in Japan.
