It was a big morning for sky-gazers, who haven’t been treated to a sight like this since 2017.
Here in the GTA, the annular solar eclipse Thursday morning created what’s called a “ring of fire”.
At around 5:40 a.m. ET, the moon passed across the sun, blocking it and casting a shadow on earth.
For some areas in the northeast U.S., the eclipse was lit up in a crescent shape.
In the GTA, the partial eclipse began at 5:35 a.m. and would last until 6:37 a.m. The maximum view in Toronto was at 5:40 a.m.
High school science teacher Brian Lim uses a homemade cardboard pinhole camera to see the sunrise solar eclipse at Woodbine Beach. He’ll be showing photos to his Rosedale Heights School of the Arts students today. pic.twitter.com/Y1k9zyMgNt
