• Ring of fire solar eclipse in pictures

    Date:22 June 2020 Author: ilhaam Bardien

    People in West Africa, the Middle East, and Asia were treated to a stunning view of a solar eclipse on Sunday, June 21.

    Otherwise known as ‘the ring of fire’, the annular eclipse is one in which the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, creating an image of a sliver of light. This occurs when the moon is too far away from the earth to hide the sun completely, therefore a thin ring of light surrounds the moon.

    This type of eclipse happens only once every one or two years and can only be seen in very few parts of the world, which collectively is known as the centreline.

    According to BBC, the eclipse lasted for approximately one and a half minutes.

    Here are some amazing images of the eclipse taking place:
