The sun and moon combined to give places from the Middle East and Africa to the east coast of the U.S. a real astronomical treat on Sunday.
The eclipse was deemed hybrid since it started annular (a "ring of fire" eclipse) and ended a total, according to AccuWeather.com Meteorologist and Astronomy blogger Mark Paquette.
Central Africa had the best viewing conditions of the eclipse, which was partially visible to those along the East Coast at sunrise.
