In the Northern Hemisphere, the solar eclipse of 2021 took place, which astronomers call the “ring of fire.”

The solar eclipse, which took place on a strip of about 500 kilometers wide from Canada to Siberia, was also partially seen from New York, USA.

The sun, which covered about 60 percent of the moon in the natural event that occurred in the morning, created an interesting image in the form of a red crescent in the sky.

According to the information given by the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), it was reported that the last similar solar eclipse was experienced in 2017, and the next one will occur in 2024.

It was stated that the natural event witnessed today is the 16th solar eclipse of the 21st century.
