The eclipse will begin in Asia and trace a path across to the western US
An "annular eclipse" will be visible from a 240 to 300km-wide swathe of Earth stretching from Asia across the Pacific to the western US on Monday.
The eclipse is happening at a time that the Moon is at its farthest from the Earth, and therefore does not block out the Sun completely.
Viewers can see the resulting "ring of fire" in China from sunrise local time on Monday (from 22:06 GMT Sunday).
From most parts of the path, it will last about four and a half minutes.
