Solar eclipses occur when the moon moves across the face of the sun and blocks out some or all of the light emanating from it.
Other countries experienced a 'ring of fire', or annular, solar eclipse where the moon moves entirely over the sun but does not block out its light, leaving a thin ring of brilliance.
- The maximum partial eclipse in North Bay and in Sudbury. So, yeah, even as we watch these pictures, we can see the crescent of the sun getting bigger and bigger as the moon starts to move off the face of the sun. The partial eclipse is now starting to wind down.
