On Thursday, people across the Northern Hemisphere who woke up early enough had a chance to experience an annular or partial eclipse of the sun.

A solar eclipse happens when the moon moves between the sun and Earth, casting a shadow on Earth, fully or partially blocking the sun’s light in some areas; this creates a "ring of fire" look.

Berkshire Eagle photographer Stephanie Zollshan took these photos at 5:30 a.m. Thursday at the Country Club of Pittsfield.
