Annular Eclipse

Yesterday, millions of people  in the western United States and Southeast Asia had witnessed a phenomenal scene of annular solar eclipse.

An annular eclipse is a solar eclipse in which the moon covers all but a bright ring around the circumference of the sun. This spectacular occurrence hadn't been witnessed in 18 years.
