'Ring of fire' solar eclipse will blaze across the Southern Hemisphere


A “ring of fire” eclipse will be visible from the Southern Hemisphere on Sunday morning, although anyone can catch the spectacle live via the space site Slooh.com.

Sunday’s solar phenomenon is known as an annular eclipse. It happens when the moon slides in between the sun and the Earth but doesn’t completely block the sun, as would a total solar eclipse. 

Instead, a thin, fiery ring of the sun’s edges blaze like an iris on an enormous, menacing eye.

We’ll track the #eclipse from start to finish from Chile and South Africa, bringing the full experience to you https://t.co/vuD0wkQm67 pic.twitter.com/MPNbVLVsir
