CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The top of the world got a sunrise special Thursday — a”ring of fire” solar panel.

This so-called annular eclipse began at the Canadian province of Ontario, then swept across Greenland, the North Pole and eventually Siberia, as the moon passed right before the sun.

An annular eclipse occurs when a new moon is around its farthest point from us appearing smaller, and so it doesn’t completely blot out the sun as it’s dead center.

The upper portions of North America, Europe and Asia enjoyed a partial eclipse, at least where the skies were clear. At those locations, the moon appeared to have a bite out of the sun.

It was the primary eclipse of the sun visible from North America because August 2017, when a stunning total solar panel crisscrossed the U.S.. The following step is coming up in 2024.

A total lunar eclipse graced the skies two weeks past.
