An annular solar eclipse occurred on June 28, 1908. 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.
Places inside the annular eclipse included a part of North America including a part of Central Mexico around Mexico City and Orlando and Daytona Beach, Florida in the USA which occurred in the morning hours. In Africa, it included Rosso, Mauritania, the northernmost part of Senegal, Bamako and the southwestern French Sudan (now Mali), the southwesternmost part of Upper Volta (now Burkina Faso) and northern British Gold Coast (now Ghana) which occurred before sunset.
