Early Thursday morning, a "ring of fire" solar eclipse happened.

It happens when the moon is about as far away as it gets from Earth, so the moon appears smaller than usual when it crosses in front of the sun as the sun shines around it.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS obtained video from NASA as it livestreamed the event, which you can view via the player above.

Minnesotans didn't get the best view but were able to see a partial solar eclipse when it peaked over the state around 5:30 a.m.
