A solar eclipse occurred early this morning as the moon pass in front of the sun. It’s an illusion referred to as a “ring of fire.” Space.com says it was in full effect in northern Canada, Greenland, and the Arctic.

NASA says in the United States, the partial eclipse was visible in parts of the Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, and in Northern Alaska. While different eclipses occur often, most of these areas haven’t seen a Sunrise eclipse like this since 1959. The next time it will happen is reportedly 2079.
Good morning to everyone, but especially the Sun and Moon forming today's #SolarEclipse. The full annular, or "ring of fire" eclipse was only visible in the far north, but @nasahqphoto captured images of the partial eclipse. https://t.co/qbR8koKjEJ pic.twitter.com/hqSAQ54wD5

Partial solar eclipse as seen from the Toronto lakeshore. An absolutely incredible morning. For once, I embrace seagulls in a shot. pic.twitter.com/8xhXUpfaAG

Despite being attacked by bugs, the partial solar eclipse was BEAUTIFUL! This was the first solar eclipse that I’ve ever seen and it definitely lived up to my expectations. pic.twitter.com/WtyTvkhNfQ
