Mini sun eclipse

Partial solar eclipse (Sofia, 2011/01/04@10:10)
[Shot made with Pentax S50; click image for larger size.]

A quick sun ray just went through the snowy clouds over Sofia… and allowed me to make this shot. :-)

[UPDATE @ 11:45] Just discovered I never showed in my blog the phases of the solar eclipse in 2006. Then I realized, my blog was started in 2007… So, a quick update (and going back into the past):

It was the year 2006. I was shooting with a Pentax again (but the model was S40). It was a bright sunny day, so I had to use some sort of a filter — I used an old 3.5″/1.44M diskette. :)

Here is the series of shots taken:

Partial solar eclipse, Sofia (2006/Mar/29, 14:00-14:30)

1. Place: 42°41’N 23°18’E (Sofia)
2. Date: 2006/March/29 @ 13:00 EET – 14:30 EET
3. Eclipse was with a maximum of 76%, and for background I used clouds that were lit by the sun… (in some parts of Bulgaria the eclipse was then up to 100%, which means, full eclipse, sun is invisible).
