New Yorkers got sight of a rare solar eclipse this morning — the first in the city since 2017’s “Great American Eclipse.”
This morning’s sunrise offered a spectacle called the “Ring of Fire” visible in the city and in the eastern parts of North America when looking towards the horizon.
The moon almost completely covered the sun at dawn in a solar eclipse. New York’s weather cleared just enough for the phenomenon to be seen. The full effect was most visibile further north — with remote parts of Canada having the best experience.
There were special events held around the city this morning, including at the top of the recently completed One Vanderbilt and the Empire State Building.
