Partial Eclipse Over Holland

January 4, 2011 partial eclipse by Arjan Almekinders

Here’s a gorgeous photo of this morning’s partial eclipse by Arjan Almekinders from the Netherlands! The eclipse was visible to most of Europe, as well as parts of north Africa and western Asia.

While the amount of light in the sky was not diminished dramatically during this eclipse according to some observers, it was noted that the temperature dropped by several degrees during the event! See more photos on the Flickr Solar Eclipse 2011 group page here.

2011 will feature four partial solar eclipses and two total lunar eclipses.
