Annular eclipse

There is an annular eclipse today. This is where the Moon moves in front of the sun. Unlike with a total eclipse, due to the distances the moon won't be blocking the light fully.

This particular event is what's termed an annular eclipse. It will see the Moon move across the face of our star but not completely block out the light coming from it.
