An annular solar eclipse occurred Thursday morning. Some viewers across the globe saw the moon pass directly in front of the sun, creating a “fire ring” effect on the morning sky.

Observers living in other areas would have only seen a partial solar eclipse that makes the sun look like a bright orange crescent moon.

If you did not wake up early enough to see Thursday’s solar eclipse yourself, photographers from the United States to Asia to Europe snapped images of the striking astronomical event.
