Watch the solar eclipse paint the sky red

Solar eclipses occur when the moon moves across the face of the sun and blocks out some or all of the light emanating from it.

Other countries experienced a 'ring of fire', or annular, solar eclipse where the moon moves entirely over the sun but does not block out its light, leaving a thin ring of brilliance.
