Partial Solar Eclipse-2011-01-04

Europe woke up on January 4th waiting for the announced total eclipse. Though some good images could be acquired by making pictures of the eclipse, in most of the places the Sun couldn't be seen due to clouds in the sky.

Here we present some images about the solar eclipse in different places around Europe.

In Ireland, according to Deirdre Kelleghan, EAAE's Irish National Representative, on January 4th a fantastic sunrise greeted the families and individuals who turned up at the South Beach Greystones Co Wicklow at 08:30 hours. The solar disc was already partially eclipsed as it rose over the sea in-between thin gray cloud slivers.  Some of the St Cronan’s boys arrived with their parents to see this phenomenon.
