Skygazers across Asia enjoy ‘Ring of fire’ solar eclipse

Skygazers across Asia could see a partial solar eclipse, also known as ‘Ring of fire’, on Sunday. This special phenomenon happens when a portion of the Earth is engulfed by the shadow (penumbra) cast by the Moon as it passes between our planet and the Sun in imperfect alignment.
