Watch 'ring of fire' in the sky this Sunday
London, May 17 (IANS) Millions of people in the US and Asia will be able to watch the sun turn into a 'ring of fire' this weekend.
Shadows on the ground will also turn into crescents and 'rings' of light as moon covers as much as 94 percent of the sun this Sunday, the Daily Mail reported.
"Because some of the sun is always exposed during the eclipse, ambient daylight won't seem much different than usual. Instead, the event will reveal itself in the shadows. Look on the ground beneath leafy trees for crescent-shaped sunbeams and rings of light," according to NASA.
"Near the centre-line of the eclipse, observers will experience something special: the ring of fire," say Nasa experts.
The event is an annular solar eclipse. It occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun, blocking everything but a bright ring of light.
Early risers in parts of China, Taiwan and Japan may catch a glimpse, weather permitting, around dawn Monday.
