PHOTOS: 'Ring of fire' solar eclipse

A rare annular solar eclipse was visible across parts of Asia and the US last night.

PHOTOS: 'Ring of fire' solar eclipse

In this type of eclipse, the moon passes in front of the sun but doesn't block it entirely, leaving a glowing "ring of fire" around its outer edge.

Sky watchers all over the eclipse's path gathered to enjoy the rare sight. It's the first time an annular solar eclipse has been visible from the US since 1994.
