See The Ring Of Fire Now

A solar eclipse and its spectacular "ring of fire" will be visible from the Southern Hemisphere this Sunday morning (Feb. 26), but no matter what side of the equator you're on, you can watch the spectacular event unfold online in a live broadcast from Slooh's online observatory.

You can watch the webcast live on the Slooh.com website Sunday beginning at 7 a.m. EST (1200 GMT).

This type of eclipse is called an annular eclipse, meaning that the sun will remain visible as a bright ring around the moon.

A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes in front of the sun.

Sometimes, the moon is far enough away from Earth that it doesn't entirely cover the sun, so part of the sun's light shines around the moon.

This eclipse will be visible in the Southern Hemisphere, covering parts of South America, the Atlantic Ocean and Africa.

Slooh will present the eclipse in live feeds from Chile and other locations.
