My favourite photographs of yesterdays annular eclipse. Yesterday, parts of Australia were treated to a spectacular "ring of fire" annular eclipse. Unfortunately, us Northerners didn't get to see anything at all - so hopefully these amazing photographs will console you.https://www.facebook.com/IFeakingLoveScience
