Earlier today a rare “ring of fire” annular solar eclipse took place just hours after the solstice. The Moon covered an astonishing 99.4% of the Sun at its peak, making is almost a total solar eclipse.

Here are all the best photos and videos of the “ring of fire”.

When is the next ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse?

That’s key. Its brevity—a result of its magnitude—is very rare, with no equal coming up in the near future. The next time the Moon will create such a slim sliver around the Sun and cause another almost-total “ring of fire” eclipse will be on May 9, 2032, when for 22 seconds 99.57% of the Sun will be covered—so the ring will be even slimmer. Sadly, it will take place across a remote region of the south Atlantic Ocean.
