Annular eclipse brings curious visitors to the Bishop Museum

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Dozens headed to the Bishop Museum Sunday afternoon to catch a glimpse of a rare "ring" eclipse.

It's also called an annular eclipse.

In Hawaii there was no ring of fire since the moon only blocked about 10 percent of the sun, but in Japan, the moon almost completely blocked out the sun.

Still, many sightseers on Oahu thought it was pretty amazing.

"It's like a cookie with a bite into it", said one viewer.

"It's an orange circle, part of it is chipped off, part of it is not orange", said another viewer.

Many people across the Pacific Ocean, and parts of the western U.S. were also able to see the eclipse.
