Day 34 - Solar Eclipse 04-01-2011

Today there was a partial solar eclipse in the skies above Sofia, and the photos in this post represent what it looked like from the place I was standing exactly at 10:55 a.m.(+2GMT Sofia, Bulgaria).

You can find some more information and pictures from BBC News on the topic in the following article:

"Tuesday witnessed the first partial solar eclipse of 2011. People standing across a great swathe of the Earth's surface saw the Moon take a big bite out of the Sun...Partial solar eclipses occur when the Sun and Moon do not quite align in the sky as viewed from Earth, and the deep shadow cast by the smaller body passing across the bigger one just misses the planet."
