Plumas and Lassen counties will be among the best seats in the house May 20 to view the first annular solar eclipse visible from the U.S. since 1994. A solar eclipse occurs only during a new moon when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, casting a shadow toward the earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the moon is farther out in its orbit around the earth, making the moon appear slightly smaller than the sun, which creates a ring of sunlight around the edge. The center line of the eclipse path passes right through northeastern California, from Crescent City to Hallelujah Junction.

“They don’t follow the rules and you (supervisors) keep giving them permits,” said Darrel Smith during the board’s May 8 meeting. “You are just asking for trouble down there.”
