Do I need to Encrypt EBS Snapshot when copying AMI to another availability zone?

Hi I am a AWS newbie and I am moving an AMI instance from one availability zone to another, and I was wondering if I need to select the encrypt EBS Snapshot option when copying an AMI from say Oregon to Virginia.

If I don’t encrypt the snapshot, does that mean any hacker can see what is in my AMI enroute from one availability zone to another?

Thanks
