Caption: Annular solar eclipse, 2005. Composite image showing the solar ring (yellow) forming around the Moon (dark circles) as it passes in front of the Sun during an annular solar eclipse. Solar eclipses occur when the Moon passes across the Sun as seen from Earth. This only occurs at New Moon, and is most commonly a partial eclipse. When the Moon is at a distant point in its orbit, an annular solar eclipse occurs and the corona (revealed in a total eclipse) remains hidden due to the brightness of the solar ring. Photographed on 3 October 2005.
