The last Annular Eclipse of the Sun visible in Western Pennsylvania occurred on
1994 May 10, when the path of annularity passed through Erie County, Pennsylvania,
including the site of the Mercyhurst College Observatory in North East, Pennsylvania.
The above eclipse images were taken in Chrissy, Ohio, just west of Toledo.
