Photos: Annular solar eclipse rises over the Illinois Valley

Did the sunrise look a little different this morning? A crescent sun rises in the east over Interstate 80 in Princeton on Thursday June 10, 2021. An annular solar eclipse happens when the moon covers the Sun's center, leaving the Sun's visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire”, or crescent shaped sphere. The eclipse was only visible for about five minutes before fading away. Illinois next total solar eclipse will occur in the southern half of the state on Monday April 8, 2024.
