The first of this year’s two solar eclipses occurred on Thursday as a dramatic “ring of fire” appeared across the skies of the northeastern U.S. as well as parts of Canada, Greenland, Asia and the Arctic, according to NASA.

The eclipse, which lasted for approximately one hour and 40 minutes, began north of Lake Superior at sunrise, before crossing desolate parts of Canada, Greenland, the Arctic Ocean and the North Pole. The cosmic episode then turned south, before concluding in southeastern Siberia. Outside of the eclipse’s direct path, skywatchers in surrounding areas were able to view a partial solar eclipse.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, covering a portion or all of the Sun’s light. In an annular or partial eclipse, the Sun’s remaining light illuminates the Moon’s black silhouette with a surrounding “ring of fire.”

The June “ring of fire”" eclipse arrives 15 days after May’s super flower blood moon, the first total lunar eclipse in almost two and a half years that was visible for roughly 14 minutes in Asia, Australia and most of the U.S. and South America.
