It was the first solar eclipse of 2021.

The moon blocked part of the sun in a solar eclipse Thursday (June 10), appearing as a partial solar eclipse to potentially millions of spectators and as a stunning "ring of fire" to some well-placed observers.

The annular solar eclipse of 2021 was at its best for spectators in northernmost latitudes — northern Canada, Greenland and Scandinavia — had the best seats?

Where weather permitted, a partial eclipse could be seen from northern latitudes in Europe and America.

Annular solar eclipses occur when the moon is a bit too close to the Earth to completely block the face of the sun (a total solar eclipse) as seen from our planet's surface.

When they align perfectly, we see a total solar eclipse, while other times a partial solar eclipse or annular event like today's are visible.

In Ronkonkoma, New York, 16-year-old Jason Materazo captured amazing views of the partial solar eclipse at sunrise with a Nikon DSLR camera and a 55 mm telephoto lens. !

In August 2017 we traveled from New York to Tennessee to see the total solar eclipse," Materazo's father Joseph told Space.com in an email.

Skywatcher James Logue captured a stunning view of the eclipse from Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, and agreed that the view was amazing, even if it was just a partial eclipse.

Logue's photo shows a zoomed in view of the sun through a Nikon CoolPix P1000 camera, which he just bought last month, as the eclipse rose up from behind some mountains. .

There will be one more solar eclipse in 2021, but it will be the Southern Hemisphere's turn to see the sun blocked by the moon.
