Last night (Sunday, May 20), many parts of the U.S. were treated to an annular solar eclipse, or part of it (known as a partial eclipse). We pulled a few images of the eclipse from a variety of sources and placed them below.
|The above was taken as Slooh's site in California experienced the "ring of fire," in which a ring of the sun is apparent around the moon.|
|The second shot was taken in New Mexico. Note the orange ring of the sun surrounding the black disk that is the moon.|
