Thursday morning’s dazzling partial solar eclipse is pictured from McCarty’s Cove in Marquette around sunrise. It was termed a “ring of fire” solar eclipse. The AP reported: “This so-called annular eclipse began at the Canadian province of Ontario, then swept across Greenland, the North Pole and finally Siberia, as the moon passed directly in front of the sun. An annular eclipse occurs when a new moon is around its farthest point from us and appearing smaller, and so it doesn’t completely blot out the sun when it’s dead center.” (Photo courtesy of Scot Stewart)
