The shadow of a rare June Solstice annular solar eclipse moved across parts of Africa, the Arabian Peninsula and southern Asia on 21 June 2020. In Asia, the path of the shadow of totality was captured on Himawari-8 True Color Red-Green-Blue (RGB) images created using Geo2Grid (above).

The shadow was also evident in FY-2G Full Disk visible imagery, from the SSEC Geostationary Satellite Imagery site (below).
