An annular solar eclipse will occur on March 10, 2100. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun's, blocking most of the Sun's light and causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring). An annular eclipse appears as a partial eclipse over a region of the Earth thousands of kilometres wide.

The path of annularity moves from Indonesia at sunrise, over the islands of Hawaii and Maui around noon, and northwestern United States at sunset.
