Most people here in the U.S. probably didn’t realize it back in January but it happened on the 16th.
This week a solar eclipse that reduced the sun to a blazing ring surrounding a sombre disk plunged millions of people in Africa and Asia into an eerie semi-darkness.
The spectacle, visible in a 185-mile band running 8,062 miles across the globe, set a record for the longest annular eclipse that will remain unbeaten for more than a thousand years.
Solar Eclipses are badass.Â Plain and simple.Â I mean I highly doubt any actual serious repercussions take place as a result but it’s pretty awesome to see total darkness during the day.Â In the same token it must be weird as hell to be in Iceland during the time of year where it’s light outside until like 3am.
In any event here are 10 cool pictures of the solar eclipse.
Thanks to DJ Mick for the photos
