The last solar eclipse of the year also known as the ‘ring of fire’ took place in some parts of India on Thursday morning. In this phenomenon, the Moon is quite far from the Earth and once it crosses the sun, a negative shadow also known as Antumbra will be visible in the form of the ring of fire. This is what is known as annular eclipse.
Many people around the world witnessed the celestial phenomenon that kick-started at 8 am and concluded at 1.36 pm and the annular phase began at 9 am and ended at 12.29 pm.
Sharing the videos and pictures of the eclipse, netizens have flooded the internet and soon hashtag #solareclipse2019

Another user wrote, “Ring of fire! Full solar eclipse, being witnessed only after 1990. This is spectacular#solareclipse2019 #solareclipse2019.”
