On the morning of Thursday (10), the eclipse ‘ring of fire’ was visible in various regions of the Earth. Astronomy lovers were able to follow the rare phenomenon for about three minutes, starting at 5:12 am (GMT).

The eclipse was 100% visible to northern Canada, Russia and Greenland. Some parts of the United States, Europe and Asia were able to see partially. As usual, those who managed to follow the phenomenon shared the images on the internet.

‘Fire ring’?

The eclipse earned the nickname ‘ring of fire’ due to the yellowish circle seen during the phenomenon. This is because the Moon is fully aligned between the Earth and the Sun during a solar eclipse. In the case of the ring of fire, the satellite is farther away from the planet and does not completely cover the Sun. Thus, some light rays “escape” around the edges and form the image.

For people who couldn’t follow it live, NASA released the video of the moment, which was streamed on YouTube.
