Early risers were treated to a solar eclipse. Here's what it looked like from southern Ontario
Those who were awake around sunrise in southern Ontario were treated to a spectacular solar eclipse.
The June 10 eclipse was an annular solar eclipse, and the view varied across Canada. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the entire moon is in front of the sun, and is different than a total solar eclipse.
For some across Canada, this created a “ring of fire” phenomenon.
The ring of fire was visible through the path of annularity, Baffin Island, northwestern Ontario and parts of northern Quebec.
In southern Ontario, although we are not located in this path, the view of this partial solar eclipse was still certainly worth the early wake up call.
Here are some stunning photos as the sun appeared to look like a crescent over southwestern Ontario.

Betty Clyde took this photo of the eclipse around 6:00 a.m. just outside of Elora.
Thank you for the tip in the newscast yesterday @ShannBradbury I got up to see the eclipse at sunrise this morning and snapped this shot with my phone, just outside of Elmira at 5:58am. @CTVKitchener pic.twitter.com/g39wGPvL8T— Jason Jackson (@JasonMediaGuy) June 10, 2021
Rob Hogarth submitted these photos of the eclipse taken shortly after sunrise on Beaverdale Road in Cambridge.
