Incredible photos capture 'Ring of Fire' in the final solar eclipse of 2019

Break out the Johnny Cash and your best paper sunglasses for the final solar eclipse of the year, and the decade.

An annular solar eclipse traveled over Indonesia and surrounding regions on Dec. 26, visible in areas stretching from Saudi Arabia to Guam. 

The phenomenon is also known as a “ring of fire” eclipse — occurring when the moon doesn’t completely cover the sun’s disk, meaning that instead of a total blackout, the slightly smaller shadow is surrounded by a bright circle of light when it’s centered.

You can see the path of the moon’s shadow across Asia in the below tweet from NOAA:

A rare #Annular, or #RingOfFire, #SolarEclipse happened on Dec. 26, which lasted 3 min and 40 sec. It was visible from most of #Asia and the #MiddleEast. See the imagery of the #SolarEclipse2019, captured by #Japan‘s #Himawari8 #satellite here: https://t.co/G8TFeh1dM2 pic.twitter.com/TtZZ2X717k
