The beautiful phenomenon lasted nearly three hours…

A partial eclipse – the biggest astronomy event of the year – took place this morning on Sunday June 21.

The spectacle was visible in countries as far afield as South Sudan and Taiwan, with our lucky neighbours in Oman able to witness the breathtaking ‘ring of fire’, which sadly, wasn’t visible in UAE.

Nonetheless, what residents did witness was nothing short of phenomenal and we have gone through your social media accounts to share some of your incredible images.
