SOUTH AFRICANS WITNESS SOLAR ECLIPSE

JOHANNESBURG, South Africans were able to see a spectacular solar eclipse Sunday.

A solar eclipse takes place when the moon passes in front of the sun. The eclipse is said to be the first of two which will occur this year. The next one will be on August 21.

The solar eclipse was visible from the Southern Hemisphere and covered the sun completely, causing what looked like a ring of fire around the moon.

Even though many South Africans were unable to see it because of cloud cover, some were and many shared the photographs they captured on social medial.
