Thousands of residents gathered on Thursday early morning in various parts of the country to witness the rare annular solar eclipse - the last one of the decade, including royals.
As expected, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, setup camp in the UAE desert to capture the celestial spectacle that occurred in the country after 172 years.
Sky gazers were in for a visual treat as past 7.30 am they could witness the 'ring of fire'.
