Partial Solar Eclipse - 4 January 2011

I felt like I was a child seeing something phenomenal for the first time. I have seen eclipses before when I was still a kid but not as an adult. I got to have a full view of the mighty sun with the moon's partial shadow this afternoon around 1345 hours Dubai time. The sun looked like it was being bitten by the moon. 

It was so fascinating! However, where is your camera when you need one?!?

According to astronomers and sky watchers, we will not get the chance to enjoy a view like these until 2015. And I am thankful to witness this partial solar eclipse which does not happen too often.
