In blue is the path of the Umbra on the surface of the Earth (from W to E).
An Annular Eclipse is like a Total one, but in its lapse the Moon is somewhat farther from the Earth's orbit, and the cone of its shadow does not reach our planet's surface. The Sun's Corona is not visible due to the ring of unocculted Sun.
A Hybrid Eclipse is in part Total, in part Annular, depending on the observer's location along the path of the Umbra on the surface of the Earth.
