SACRAMENTO -- Johnny Cash famously sang about one -- and this weekend a burning ring of fire was seen in the skies above the United States on Sunday.
Scott Russell sent in a photo of the eclipse to FOX 9 News, which was taken at 8:20 p.m. on Sunday in Lakeville, Minn. If you have a photo you would like to submit, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or upload it here.
Northern Californians around Sacramento and Lake Tahoe saw some of the best views of the "ring of fire" eclipse on Sunday afternoon, which is so named because the moon will completely block the sun except for a sliver around its edge, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Experts call it an "annular eclipse" and it will be the first in the US since 1994.
In Sacramento, the ring of fire will lasted from 5:27 p.m. until 5:32 p.m.
Other prime viewing spots included areas near Crescent City and Redding, Calif.; east of Reno, Nev.; north of St. George, Utah; the Grand Canyon in Arizona; Albuquerque, N.M.; and Lubbock, Texas.
A more common partial eclipse was visible in much of the US on Sunday afternoon.
Elsewhere in the world, southern China, Hong Kong, Taipei, Taiwan and eastern Tokyo will enjoy the ring of fire.
