The annular solar eclipse of June 10, 2021 took place mainly in the northern polar region. Not least because the eclipse occurred shortly before the summer solstice , the visibility area was so far north. Therefore, the course from east to west was also quite unusual, as the ring-shaped zone runs where the sun illuminated parts of the night hemisphere of the earth over the North Pole .

For the first time after the solar eclipse of March 20, 2015 , the moon was seen in front of the sun in German-speaking countries .

The annular phase could first be seen in Ontario during sunrise. The area with circular visibility continued across Hudson Bay and Baffin Island to Baffin Bay . The shadow path swept across western Greenland , the maximum of the darkness occurring over the Nares Strait . The corridor of circular visibility there was 527 kilometers wide, so it also extended over Ellesmere Island to the west of the strait and Greenland to the east. The North Pole was also later in the zone with ring-shaped visibility. Towards the end of the darkness, the corridor with ring-shaped visibility reached the New Siberian Islands and Yakutia . There the eclipse could be seen under suitable weather conditions during sunset.
