Blazing "Ring of Fire" Eclipse Makes Millions Look toward Sky from Eastern Asia to Western U.S.
from CBS News
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (Associated Press) -- From a park near Albuquerque, to the top of Japan's Mount Fuji, to the California coast the effect was dramatic: The moon nearly blotting out the sun creating a blazing "ring of fire" eclipse.
Millions of people across a narrow strip of eastern Asia and the Western U.S. turned their sights skyward for the annular eclipse, in which the moon passes in front of the sun leaving only a golden ring around its edges.
The rare lunar-solar alignment was visible in Asia early Monday before it moved across the Pacific--and the international dateline--where it was seen in parts of the western United States late Sunday afternoon.
