Impressive images of the annular solar eclipse from Chile and Argentina

These stunning images show the moment the Moon created a total eclipse of the Sun in Chile and Argentina on February 26, 2017.

The impressive solar eclipse left a ‘Ring of Fire’ around the Sun, as normal sunlight was blocked out.
