Partial solar eclipse - 3.11.2013 at 15.14 - 3.11.2013 at 16.05 Karpazin Kansallispuisto, Kypros Observation number 19727

Visibility Unclassified

Toni Veikkolainen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

Towards the end of a day trip to the northeastern tip of the island of Cyprus, I had the opportunity to observe the Sun, which is about 16% darkened. Mainly, I was content to follow the progress of the phenomenon visually, and left the filming to less.

At the onset of the eclipse, according to Cartes du Ciel, the Sun was at 17 degrees and at its deepest stage at 10 degrees. I stopped detecting a little after the deepest phase, when it was time to get on the bus and walk back to the hotel.

Attached images were taken at 15.27, 15.48 and 15.59 local time (GMT + 2). The eclipse was at its deepest stage at 3:53 p.m. With the naked eye I could not detect any darkening of the landscape, as I had assumed, and as a whole the phenomenon was dull, although there is again one more eclipse observed on my list.
