Partial solar eclipse

This outdated article about some partial solar eclipse- it was in 2008, but to keep both Lithuanian and English blog “synchronized” I leave this article.

Info from wiki:

As seen from the Earth, a solar eclipse is a type of eclipse that occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon fully or partially blocks (“occults”) the Sun. This can happen only at new moon, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction as seen from Earth in an alignment referred to as syzygy. In a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon. In partial and annular eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured.

And here is photo made using some welding mask glass:
