If you were up early enough you may have seen a picturesque partial solar eclipse to kick off the day.

The Sun came up over Northeast U.S. looking like a crescent Moon. A little farther north, in Ontario, Canada a “ring of fire” eclipse, where the Moon slips perfectly across the Sun to leave a ring or annulus around the Moon, could be seen.

A Sunrise coinciding with the peak of a solar eclipse is a rather rare occurrence. It has only happened twice in New York in the last 150 years - September 1875 and October 1959.

If you missed the rare eclipse because you weren't up that early, or like us, had a tree in your way, here's some stunning shots Central New Yorkers took from Utica to Syracuse.
