'Ring of Fire' Eclipse Glows in Sky Above Ontario

Skywatchers across the northern hemisphere had the chance to see a partial eclipse of the sun on June 10.

What’s called an “annular eclipse” occurs, NASA said, when the moon “is far enough away from Earth that [it] appears smaller than the sun in the sky.”

This creates what looks like “a ring of fire” around the moon at more northern latitudes. Those in Canada, Greenland, and northern Russia would be best placed to see this effect.
