Annular Solar Eclipse From Thiruvananthapuram

26th Dec was a luck day For Keralites to capture the Annular Solar Eclipse.

So what is an annular solar eclipse?

An annular solar eclipse happens when the Moon covers the Sun’s center, leaving the Sun’s visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire” or annulus around the Moon. The characteristic “ring of fire”. The ring of fire marks the maximum stage of an annular solar eclipse. (Ref)
