On October 14th, an Annular solar eclipse crossed the Americas with a central path that was mostly over land and bookended by the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, allowing millions to view the spectacle. As an Annular eclipse (from the word annulus or ring) the Moon appeared within the disk of the Sun at peak eclipse. This was due to the Moon having passed through apogee — the point in its orbit furthest from the Earth — on October 10th. By the 14th, it was still too small to cover the Sun completely. This created the Ring of Fire effect — a ring of light from the Sun that shown around the lunar disk.
