    A partial solar eclipse is expected to be visible over parts of North America on Thursday, the first time in close to half a decade that one has been visible in northeastern parts of the continent.

    As the moon blocks the sun’s light, it casts a shadow on the Earth and when it completely covers the sun it can be considered a total eclipse. But in other cases, like on Thursday, only part of the sun is covered due to the moon’s orbit, making it a partial eclipse.

    But in some northern latitudes, including northern Ontario and parts of Nunavut, the so-called “ring of fire” may also be seen. Ross Hull explains more on what that means, where you might see the eclipse and how you can view it safely.
