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.
