Yesterday there was an annular solar eclipse.
People in parts of Asia and western North America were very lucky to be able to witness the amazing and rare astronomical event.
Anyway we cannot see yesterday’s solar eclipse in Kuala Lumpur so I can only watch them on YouTube videos.
Here are some of the wonderful videos posted on YouTube:

An annular solar eclipse or the ‘ring of fire’ was seen in western North America today.
This is a rare astronomical event.
It crossed parts of Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico before disappearing in Texas with the sunset.
An annular eclipse occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its furthest point from the Earth and closer to the much larger sun.
That juxtaposition allows the moon to block more than 90 percent of the sun’s rays when the two orbs slide into alignment.
This morning an annular eclipse was seen in Asia.
