Photographs Capture the Mesmerizing Spectacle of the Solar Eclipse in 2021
On Thursday, photographers all across the world snapped breathtaking photographs of the solar eclipse.
A total eclipse was visible in Canada, Greenland, and northeastern Russia, with the sun appearing as a “ring of fire” in the sky.
In Europe, North America, and northern Asia, a fragmentary version was seen.
The spectacle occurs when the moon crosses in front of the sun and partially hides it.

An annular solar eclipse occurs when the moon obscures all but a little portion of the sun, resulting in the distinctive ring shape. The amount of sun covered changes with partial eclipses, partially covering the light to create a crescent shape.
On Thursday morning, the solar eclipse began at 8:12 a.m. UTC (4:12 a.m. EST), with visibility varying depending on location.
Despite the bad weather in New York City during the eclipse, photographers were able to snap photographs of the crescent-shaped sun peeping out from the clouds above the Manhattan skyline.
The eclipse was more noticeable in New Jersey, where an image captured early in the morning revealed a dark crimson eclipsed sun.
On Thursday morning, images were captured from London, England, revealing a partial eclipse among the gloomy sky in the area.
Photos from Ontario, Canada, also showed the bottom portion of the sun—which appeared to be blood red.
Footage and images from social media showed the crescent sun rising above Baltimore, Maryland, and New Hampshire, while NASA shared a photo of a pink eclipse in Delaware captured by members of its team.

However, others were left disappointed as the heavy cloud coverage prevented many from seeing the partial eclipse properly on Thursday morning.
There will be. This is a brief summary.
