The Northern Hemisphere witnesses a unique celestial solar eclipse.

Thursday, the northern hemisphere will witness a unique celestial eclipse of the sun, but the inhabitants of the Arab world will not be able to watch it, unfortunately.

This event is known as an annular eclipse of the sun, where you see the moon moving across the face of the sun, but it does not completely block the light emitted by it.

Instead, a thin, sparkling ring will appear around the sun’s disk.

Perhaps the best place on Earth to view this eclipse is the North Pole.
