    The so-called “ring of fire” emerges as the bright ring of sunlight draws around the Moon. People in Russia, Canada and Greenland will also be able to witness the phenomenon.

    Sputnik is live from New York City and Washington DC, where people will have a rare glimpse of a solar eclipse, which usually occurs every 18 months on average. This happens when the Earth, moon and sun align to form a rare and amazing sight. The event is set to begin at 5:42 a.m. local time (9:42 a.m. GMT), reach its peak at 5:47 a.m. (9:47 a.m. GMT) and end at 6:29 a.m. (10:29 a.m. GMT).
