This pictures are just magic. Yesterday, the moon glided between Earth and the sun, blocking everything but a dazzling ring of light.
The ‘ring of fire’ eclipse crossed Australia and the Pacific and created a shimmering circle of light in the sky on the sun.
This partial eclipse is the second of its type to hit Australia in six months. In last November, a total solar eclipse plunged the country’s northeast into darkness. You lucky Aussies!
Unlike a total solar eclipse, which essentially turns day into night, an annular eclipse just dims the sunlight.
