According to the astronomer, the solar eclipse of 2021 will be similar to the Death Star in front of the sun.

People in the Northern Hemisphere will be able to spot a “ring of fire” in the sky when an annular solar eclipse moves across our planet this Thursday (June 10).

Solar eclipses occur when the Moon moves directly between the Sun and Earth, casting a shadow on our planet and blocking at least some of the sunlight. This Thursday at sunrise, we can expect an annular solar eclipse, which occurs when the Moon is too far from Earth in its elliptical orbit to completely block the Sun, as happens during a total solar eclipse. Instead, it leaves the sun’s outer ring open, creating the appearance of a “ring of fire” in the sky during the only annular solar eclipse in 2021.
