Get ready for the rare 'Ring of Fire' Solar Eclipse according to 3 CBS Philly. The first solar eclipse of 2021 will be a partial eclipse and will happen early in the morning at 5:32 AM on Thursday, June 10th.

A solar eclipse takes place when the moon positions itself between the earth and the sun. The moon will cast a shadow over the earth to complete the eclipse according to the website space.com.

The rare 'Ring of Fire' solar eclipse starts right after sunrise on June 10th and will last only 1 hour and 40 minutes. The best time to view the eclipse will be early morning right after the sun rises.

It is dangerous to look directly into the sun especially at the peak time of the eclipse even with sunglasses on. The safest way to watch the eclipse is with eclipse glasses rated 14 or higher, specially designed solar binoculars or telescopes, and a pinhole projector

Get ready for the trifecta of supermoons which will take place to officially start the 2021 summer season on June 24th as the Strawberry Supermoon will be visible over the skies of South Jersey.

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
