An annular solar eclipse occurred Thursday morning. Some viewers around the world have seen the moon pass directly in front of the sun, creating a “ring of fire” effect in the morning sky.

Observers living in other regions would have seen only a partial solar eclipse, making the sun look like a bright orange crescent.

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