A post-Christmas Day cosmic gift, a solar “Ring of Fire,” was visible throughout much of Southeast Asia today.
Starting before noon, sky gazers and space buffs were stepping outside to take a look at the annular solar eclipse that darkened the sky and turned the sun into a halo of fire.
While Singapore was among the best places to catch the phenomenon, some folks in the south of Thailand shared some of their best angles of the partial eclipse online. It reached its maximum effect at 1:20pm (Singapore)/12:20pm, Bangkok time.
Other than the eclipse in the sky, netizens were as much thrilled over the crescent-shaped shadows it created.
