Sky watchers from some parts of South America, Argentina and Chile thoroughly enjoyed this fascinating event. Southwest Africa, Antarctica and other southern parts of America, the Atlantic and Indian Oceans also experienced partial solar eclipses. Unfortunately, this heavenly event was not visible from Asian countries.
The intrigued internet users who had the opportunity to visually enjoy the event shared stunning images and videos. So if you’re into space activities, don’t miss the opportunity to see what this fascinating event looked like from Earth.
When a full solar eclipse occurs, the moon blocks the sun largely, while a partial solar eclipse occurs and the sun is partially covered by the moon. If you see the ring of fire effect during the solar eclipse, this is the moon covering the sun from the center. Since the moon is smaller than the sun, it looks like a ring of flame surrounded by a dark disk. Some people captured the partial solar eclipse and others captured the light shadow effects on Earth.
