ring of fire

Nancy Tucker of East Falmouth captures a celestial moment at Menauhant.

There were a good number of people at Menauhant early this morning to watch the “ring of fire” annular eclipse, which occurs when the moon is far enough from Earth that it doesn’t cover the entire bright glowing surface of the sun. As a result, a thin circular strip of glowing sun remains once the moon is centered in front of the sun.
