In the caption, NASA explained the phenomenon of solar eclipses and why they occur. The caption read: “With our eyes to the skies, we felt our hearts skip a beat and we admired. A view of a lifetime. Shown here, we see a partial solar eclipse as the Sun peeks behind the United States Capitol Building and from the Delaware Breakwater Lighthouse, on June 10, 2021. Solar eclipses happen when the Moon dances in front of the Sun, from the viewpoint of our planet. A “ring of fire” or annular eclipse occurs when the Moon is near its farthest point from Earth during an eclipse, so the Moon appears smaller than the Sun in the sky and doesn’t block the whole solar disk. The “ring of fire” solar eclipse was only visible to some people in Greenland, Northern Russia, and Canada.”
