The first Solar Eclipse of 2021 came out this Thursday. There has been a partial eclipse among people in areas of the north-eastern section of the United States, Canada, and Greenland. In the Polar Region, only far north occurred the spectacular ‘ring of fire’ or annular solar eclipse. When the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, a Solar Eclipse occurs. When the moon goes directly before the Sun to block the solar eclipse except for a ring round the edges, a ring of fire will take place. On 19 November the next eclipse will occur. The eclipse will be Lunar and on December 4 the last of the year.

The whole Solar Eclipse ‘fire ring’ lasted almost 100 minutes. The sunrise began in Canada in Ontario. The eclipse went to the polar areas. In the northern part of Greenland, the biggest eclipse was seen. The route of the ring eclipse went through the North Polar Earth. At sunset over North-Eastern Siberia, the annular Solar Eclipse ended. The ‘fire ring’ lasted little more than three minutes and five-and-a-half seconds.

The live stream link to the solar eclipse of 2021 has been provided by NASA as well as Timeanddate.com so everyone may view this uncommon celestial event online on the 10th of June. According to NASA, every 18 months annular sun eclipses occur somewhere on Earth and, unlike lunar eclipses, are observable for only a few minutes. Note that only partial solar eclipses from the northern and southern poles as specified by NASA can be viewed.
