Ring of fire: this is how the solar eclipse was seen in the world | Digital Trends Spanish
This Thursday, June 10, the world witnessed a unique annular solar eclipse, the first of two solar eclipses that will occur in 2021.
On this occasion, the Moon came between the Earth and the Sun; Due to the distance our satellite was from the planet, it did not completely cover the star.
In other words, the Moon was in an orbit point further away from the Earth than normal.
In some regions of the world it was possible to appreciate the sunlight that surrounded the Moon, and it is for this visual effect that the phenomenon is called the ring of fire.

During this day NASA has shared some images on its social networks that show how the eclipse has been seen in different latitudes.
Due to its location on Earth, some people have only been able to observe a partial solar eclipse. That is, they have not seen the Sun and the Moon perfectly aligned.
This has occurred in certain regions of the United States and parts of the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and North Africa.
In addition to being the first annular eclipse of the year, this June 10 was the sixteenth of the 21st century. The next phenomenon will be a partial lunar eclipse that will occur between November 18 and 19.
In this way, the internet and social networks have been filled with beautiful postcards that show how the eclipse was experienced in different parts of the world. These are some of the most striking.
