If you were lucky enough to be in Asia, the western United States or anywhere in between today, you would’ve been graced with the clear sight of what looked like a ring of fire in the sky. Or more specifically, an annular eclipse. Here are the best pictures we’ve seen.

The picture above was taken in Japan by Joseph Tame. He actually has video of the raw footage of the eclipse, if you fancy a look. Looking at all of the pictures of the eclipse, the sky looked like it held a suspended icy ring of fire. Or maybe even a halo. Either way, they’re amazing.
