Missed This Morning’s Solar Eclipse Over Africa?

Watch a time-lapse here

If you got distracted by the exploding rocket in Florida and missed Slooh’s live broadcast of the solar eclipse that passed over Africa today, don’t panic.

You can watch the solar eclipse in a beautiful time-lapse captured by Slooh and Weathernews Japan. The eclipse wasn’t a total eclipse, where the moon would block out the entire sun, but rather an annular eclipse, which leaves a lovely ‘ring of fire’ visible to observers.

This was 2016’s last solar eclipse, but 2017 is going to bring some very exciting solar eclipse news. Almost a year from now, on August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will travel across the United States.

In the meantime, enjoy the time-lapse from today’s event:
