Break out the Johnny Cash and your best paper sunglasses for the final solar eclipse of the year, and the decade.

An annular solar eclipse traveled over Indonesia and surrounding regions on Dec. 26, visible in areas stretching from Saudi Arabia to Guam. 

The phenomenon is also known as a “ring of fire” eclipse — occurring when the moon doesn’t completely cover the sun’s disk, meaning that instead of a total blackout, the slightly smaller shadow is surrounded by a bright circle of light when it’s centered.
