Most the earth did not experience the full “ring of fire” during the first solar eclipse of 2021 on June 10th.

Just lucky viewers in Canada, Greenland, and Siberia were treated with the full honor of the eclipse, even though most of the United States was able to get a partial phase – and the images are stunning.

By Space, two NASA photographers, Bill Ingalls and Aubrey Gemignani, were stationed in the U.S. capital, Washington DC and Delaware, to capture amazing images.

Eclipses occurs when the moon travels between the sun and the earth. But because the moon is too far from the Earth’s orbit, it doesn’t block the sun completely, leaving the famous “Ring of Fire.”

The next sun the eclipse is scheduled for December 4 this year, but will only be visible from Antarctica. If you missed one this week, good luck next year!

For now, to watch amazing photos of the partial eclipse.
