‘Ring of fire’ solar eclipse of 2021 thrills stargazers with sunrise spectacle

The moon blocked part of the sun in a solar eclipse Thursday (June 10), appearing as a partial solar eclipse to potentially millions of spectators and as a stunning “ring of fire” to some well-placed observers.

The annular solar eclipse of 2021 was at its best for spectators in northernmost latitudes — northern Canada, Greenland and Scandinavia — had the best seats. From there, the moon appeared to block (but not fully cover) the sun, leaving a glowing “ring of fire” effect visible around the moon.
