Here’s a selection of fantastic images of the rare solar eclipse - the so-called annular solar eclipse - which darkened the skies from China to Texas on 20 May 2012. According to a NASA scientist, this solar eclipse did not completely block the sun (like a total eclipse would). Instead, the moon will cover up to 94 percent of the sun at the eclipse's peak, leaving a bright ring of light - called an annulus, which means ring-like (hence the 'Ring of Fire' Solar Eclipse) - around the moon's disc.
