Rare ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse dazzles in pictures from around the world 2019

The day after Christmas brought an annular eclipse to part of the eastern hemisphere, and you better believe the cameras came out to catch it.

We were treated to three solar eclipses in 2019, with the final one sending us into 2020 with a “ring of fire” in the sky. On Thursday, part of the eastern hemisphere was treated to the only annular solar eclipse of the year, which is when the moon passes in front of the sun at a distance that doesn’t quite cover the entire solar disc, creating a freaky eye of Sauron effect.

You can watch the entire process of the moon slipping by the sun in the above video from Singapore.

Some of the best shots captured the ring of fire forming in the morning hours over the Middle East and southern Asia, like this masterpiece from Dubai by photographer Kertu Saarits:


The formation of the ring was also caught from Saudi Arabia:


Clouds in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, added a dramatic effect:

The view was little different from space, where astronauts on the International Space Station instead looked earth-ward and caught the shadow of the moon on our planet:

Here’s what today’s annular solar #eclipse (when the Moon is in line in between Earth and the Sun) looked like from @Space_Station. We saw the shadow of the #Moon on the #Earth below, just above the horizon (central gray area above horizon). #SolarEclipse2019 #SolarEclipse
