    Netizens and skywatchers were quick to share their stunning photos of the "ring of fire" eclipse as it graced the sky between 3:00 pm and 5:30 pm.


    According to state weather bureau PAGASA, an annular solar eclipse occurs when the moon, while at its farthest distance from the earth, enters the point in its orbit located directly in front of the sun.

    In the Philippines, Itbayat, Batanes had one of the best views of the solar eclipse, where it was seen at 91% or near-total obscurity.
