‘Ring of fire’ solar eclipse over Rose Valley Lake

A crescent shaped partially eclipsed sun rises over the north eastern hills surrounding Rose Valley Lake around 5:40 Thursday morning for a "Ring of Fire" solar eclipse.

Thursday morning’s skies made for a fantastic sunrise with this ‘ring of fire” solar eclipse, seen here over the north eastern hills surrounding Rose Valley Lake.

An annular eclipse, also called a ‘ring of fire’ eclipse, appears when the moon is near its farthest point from the Earth during the eclipse. The moon looks smaller than the sun and does not block the entire sun, according to space.com.
