This looks to be annular only by a very small margin.  My initial calculations show the the uncovered disk of the sun will be a ring only 1/4 second of arc thick.  Does this jive with other's calculations?  If this is correct, it will be very interesting to see what that small amount of sunlight will do to destroy the view of the corona and prominences.  If anything is visible, it will be only fleeting.  Perhaps Baily's Beads will be the star of the show.
