See The Stunning Photos Of This Morning's 'Ring Of Fire' Solar Eclipse

The sun is partially eclipsed as it rises over lower Manhattan in New York on Thursday.

An annular solar eclipse occurred Thursday morning. Some viewers across the globe saw the moon pass directly in front of the sun, creating a "ring of fire" effect in the morning sky.

Observers living in other areas would have only seen a partial solar eclipse, which makes the sun look like a glowing orange crescent.

If you didn't wake up early enough to see Thursday's solar eclipse yourself, photographers from the U.S. to Asia to Europe snapped images of the striking astronomical event.

A previous photo caption on this story incorrectly stated that students were viewing a lunar eclipse. In fact, it was a solar eclipse.
