Astronomy enthusiasts rose in the early-morning hours to capture a rare glimpse at a solar eclipse.

Those in the northern US as well as Canada and Greenland got the best shots of the "ring of fire" eclipse that took place Thursday morning, though the eclipse was only partial for most of the Northern Hemisphere.

The space enthusiast Brandon Berkoff woke up at 5 am to snap this picture from the Sunken Meadow beach on Long Island, New York. "I got there right as the sun got above the horizon," he told Insider.

The meteorology student Collin Gross was also an early riser and met about a dozen people on a beach in New Jersey waiting for the eclipse. "It was amazing!" he said. "This was the first one I've actually seen, and it's so much more amazing seeing it in person."

Here, the partially blocked sun is seen behind the Statue of Liberty:

There won't be another annular solar eclipse this year, but it's the first of two solar eclipses in 2021.

Insider's Aria Bendix describes the celestial science behind the occurrence in a previous post.
