Early on Thursday, June 10, a rare annular solar eclipse is taking place. The moon is passing over the sun, creating a partial eclipse that looks like a “ring of fire” around the moon. Because the moon appears smaller in the sky, it won’t completely block out the sun. Instead, you’ll enjoy what appears to be a “ring of fire” around the sun instead. If you’re in a location where you can’t see the eclipse or if the weather isn’t cooperating, then you can watch online via the live streams below.

You can watch the ring of fire eclipse in a variety of live streams, including the selection listed below.
