SkyForce10 captured the “Ring of Fire” partial solar eclipse Thursday morning over Philadelphia.
The event, known as the annular solar eclipse, occurs when the moon is too far from Earth to block all of the sun, leaving the sun on the moon’s disk in a “ring of fire,” according to the NASA.
SkyForce10 was able to capture images of the moon partially blocking the sun on Thursday morning. The “Ring of Fire” solar eclipse has been observed in different parts of North America.
On the morning of Thursday, June 10, sky watchers in parts of North America were able to witness the partial solar eclipse. The moon passed in front of the sun starting just after dawn in the Philadelphia area.
Since it is not safe to look directly at the sun with the naked eye, SkyForce10 and other cameras have given viewers a glimpse of the spectacle in the sky. The last moon burst passed over the sun over the Philadelphia area around 6:30 a.m.
Clouds obscured the eclipse in parts of the Philadelphia area, however, you could see part of it over the New Jersey coast.
