Photos of the solar eclipse: June 10, 2021

A beautiful eclipse greeted northern and eastern Canadians as they woke up on June 10, 2021. Here’s what our readers saw.

A beautifully shadowed early morning Sun greeted northern and eastern Canadians lucky enough to have clear skies on June 10, 2021, as the annular eclipse swept across the country.

Drawing a line down North America, from the Yukon to Georgia, those east got a view of the partial eclipse. A strip around the globe, from Lake Superior to Russia, saw the annular eclipse.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon crosses between the Sun and the Earth. When an eclipse occurs and the Moon is smaller in our sky than the Sun (meaning the Moon is farther away), it creates an annular or “ring of fire” eclipse.

Here are just a few of the images taken by SkyNews readers in southern Canada.
