Cities around the world, including Lebanon, witnessed the ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse. This annular eclipse just took place.

It started at sunrise in Africa, moved across to China, and ended at sunset over the Pacific Ocean.

In Lebanon, the sky was dim and the ring of fire appeared, witnessed by the Lebanese people on Sunday morning between 7:30 and 9:30 am.

This solar eclipse was described by Al Jazeera to be: “the most dramatic to shadow the Earth in years.”

An annular solar eclipse happens when the Moon covers the Sun’s center, leaving its outer edges visible to form a ‘ring of fire’. It’s also called Corona of The Sun.

These eclipses usually occur every couple of years.

The view from Lebanon, although it wasn’t as prominent as from other countries, people took advantage and appreciated the rare scene anyways.
