Annular solar eclipse turns sun into a ring of fire

Last Friday, the first solar eclipse of the year was visible to a lucky few in Western Australia and some Pacific Islands. The unique celestial event created a ‘ring of fire’ pattern as the moon came between us earthlings and the sun. Though it is dangerous to look straight at an eclipse, audiences were provided with special glasses to watch it all happen. And if you weren’t lucky enough to be in a place to view it in person, Slooh created a free app to let people watch the live feed from a telescope.
