Annular Solar Eclipse

Source - Space Weather News for Jan. 14, 2010:

ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE: The Moon is about to pass directly in front of the sun, producing an annular solar eclipse on Jan. 15th between 0500 and 0900 GMT. The zone of visibility stretches from Africa across the Indian Ocean to eastern Asia. Onlookers in those places should be alert for crescent-shaped shadows on the ground and "ring of fire" suns in the sky. Visit today for an animated preview and again tomorrow for photos and movies of the actual event.
