Solar eclipse, “ring of fire” light up skies around the world

Several countries got to experience a celestial phenomenon on Thursday as they witnessed a solar eclipse lighting up the skies in the northern hemisphere.

Timelapse footage from St. Catharine’s, Ont. captured a partial solar eclipse, creating a spectacular crescent which rose in the night sky and painted the sky red.

Solar eclipses occur when the moon moves across the face of the sun and blocks out some or all of the light emanating from it.

Other countries experienced a “ring of fire,” or annular, solar eclipse where the moon moves entirely over the sun but does not block out its light, leaving a thin ring of brilliance.
