Eclipse Anular

Fifteen days after the “supermoon” of May 5th when the moon was at perigee, the moon will be at apogee and will be too small to obscure the entire disc of the sun when their paths intersect (as viewed from earth). This will give an “annular” eclipse of the sun on May 20th which will be visible from China across the Pacific to North America.

This excellent map by Michael Zoeller of eclipse-maps.com gives a comprehensive picture of where the  eclipse will be visible and the magnitude of the eclipse visible:
