KEWAUNEE, Wis. (WBAY) - Skygazers in the northern hemisphere were treated to the awesome sight of a partial solar eclipse Thursday morning.

The eclipse started at sunrise. About 50 percent of the sun was blocked by the moon.

We were live in Kewaunee and captured the beauty on Action 2 News This Morning.

“A solar eclipse happens when the Moon moves between the Sun and Earth, casting a shadow on Earth, fully or partially blocking the Sun’s light in some areas,” says NASA.

Folks farther to the north experienced the full “ring of fire” eclipse.
