Hi, thanks for posting. Why is this a hybrid solar eclipse?

Why is this a hybrid solar eclipse?

Because from some parts of the Earth, it will be (barely) total: the Moon's apparent angular diameter will be larger than that of the Sun; and from other parts of the Earth, it will be (barely) annular: the Moon's apparent angular diameter will be smaller than that of the Sun, so that a very thing ring of light will appear around the Moon.
