Solar eclipse over the North Pacific Ocean

Uploader comment: On May 20, 2012, sky watchers from eastern Eurasia to western North America saw a fiery ring around the Moon as it passed between the Sun and the Earth. Known as an annular eclipse, the event blocked sunlight across a swath of Earth up to 300 kilometers (185 miles) wide, and the effects were most dramatic across the northern Pacific Ocean.
