People across Asia are witnessing an annular solar eclipse, which is also known as a “ring of fire”.
The rare phenomenon stunned everyone in attendance to witness it across the world.
A number of Boholanos documented the solar disk re-emerging from behind the Moon after the annularity.

A solar eclipse is a phenomenon that occurs when the moon is farthest from the Earth.
In an annular eclipse, the moon covers the centre of the Sun, giving the appearance of a bright ring.
In Bohol, residents were in awe of the eclipse, which was seen between 12:40 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., peaking sometime between 2:20 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The next annular solar eclipse will be visible in the Philippines in 2063 and 2074.
We have compiled some photos of the rare phenomenon taken by netizens.
