Most Stunning Solar Eclipse Photos 2012

If you looked up into the sky last night, you may have witnessed an annular solar eclipse, when the moon does not completely block the sun, but leaves a fiery ring around its circumference. Also known as the Ring of Fire, it was visible from only certain parts of the world – the Chinese coast, northern Taiwan, the south of Japan, and the western United States. For American skywatchers this was particularly signifiant since it marked the first time in 18 years that an annular solar eclipse could be seen from the United States!
