Solar Eclipse 2021: The 'ring of fire' Solar Eclipse was visible in the Far North, details here

The first Solar Eclipse or Surya Grahan of 2021 took place on Thursday. In India, a partial eclipse was visible only in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh. People in parts of northeastern United States, Canada, Greenland, northern Europe and Siberian Russia witnessed the partial eclipse. The dramatic 'ring of fire' or annular Solar Eclipse occured only far north in the polar region. A Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon directly moves between the Sun and Earth. An annular Solar Eclipse takes place when the Moon moves right in front of the Sun, blocking it, except for a ring around the edges, and this creates the 'ring of fire' look. The next eclipse will take place on November 19. It will be a Lunar Eclipse and the last one of the year will occur on December 4. 

The entire 'ring of fire' Solar Eclipse lasted for about 100 minutes. It started at sunrise in Ontario in Canada. The eclipse moved towards the polar regions. The greatest eclipse was visible in northern Greenland at its local time. The path of the annular eclipse crossed the Earth's North Pole. The annular Solar Eclipse ended at sunset over northeastern Siberia. The 'ring of fire' lasted a maximum of 3 minutes 51 seconds in the path of annularity.
