A workday afternoon on Dec. 26 was filled with excitement as an annular solar eclipse took place in Singapore.
Plenty of people ditched the comfort of air-conditioning and made their way outdoors to witness the rare astronomical event.
Observers saw a "ring of fire" as the moon shifted directly in front of the sun:
If you, like us, accidentally stared at the sun for a second too long, there might be pops of crescent in your vision for a couple of minutes after.
This is because you're not supposed to look directly at the sun, even with sunglasses.
Doing so could cause damage to your retinas.
