Sun and moon will show us a ‘ring of fire’ Sunday

?First it was the moon, delivering astronomical delights with “supermoon,” a descending globe of lunar splendor. Now, the sun has stepped in to dazzle sky lovers with an upcoming annular eclipse, known more commonly and poetically as the “ring of fire.” Those who’ve seen it call it equally impressive as a total eclipse and millions are currently preparing viewing spots for the spectacle that goes down this Sunday.

Like the total eclipse, the event is marked by the moon moving between the sun and Earth and obstructing light. The difference is the moon is further away from the earth during the “ring of fire,” allowing a sliver of sunlight to peek around.
