Instagrammers Capture “Ring of Fire” Solar Eclipse

See more photos from the eclipse by searching #eclipse and #solareclipse.

The first annular solar eclipse of 2013 took place yesterday. The passage of the moon directly in front of the sun made it appear as though there were a “ring of fire” in the sky.

Instagrammers from Australia and the islands of the Southern Pacific Ocean—the only places where the eclipse was visible—shared photos of this spectacular sight.

An annular solar eclipse took place today, visible in the western United States and parts of Asia. The eclipse is the first of its kind to be visible from the mainland United States since 1994. Another such eclipse will not occur in the region until 2023.
