Ring of Fire, Seen From Space

The moon nearly blots out the sun on January 4 during an annular eclipse captured here by Japan's Hinode satellite. During an annular eclipse, the moon is slightly farther from Earth than usual and so appears smaller than during a total eclipseŚleaving the edges of the sun visible.
(See more annular eclipse pictures.)
Whoever said anything was possible, obviouly never tried slamming a revolving door.
