Solar eclipse taking place on the evening of May 20, 2012 as seen from Schererville, Indiana. This particular eclipse was viewable throughout most of the United States and in a select area on the western coast from roughly Sacramento southeast to Albuquerque, the eclipse was seen with a “ring of fire”. A ring of fire eclipse is when the moon completely fills the middle of the sun leaving an outer ring of light. This only happens occasionally and is dependent on where the moon is in its cycle. In this case, the moon appears smaller than the sun, therefore some viewers in the western United States will witness a ring of fire for several minutes.
