If you are at the right location in the world that is the southern hemisphere on 26th February, 2017; you are in for a marvellous treat.This year's only breathtaking 'ring of fire' solar eclipse will occur on this day.The eclipse will leave a halo of light surrounding the sun, as normal sunlight is blocked out.

The complete solar eclipse also known as annular solar eclipse happens quite rarely. As per NASA, an annular eclipse occurs when the moon, moves directly between Earth and the sun. To make sure that safety is maintained, viewers should not observe the eclipse unfold with the naked eye.
