Cebu: Partial Solar Eclipse

Partial Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth, but they don’t align in a perfectly straight line, so the Moon only partially covers the Sun’s disc.

We experienced this phenomenon today and I was awestruck at how the sun looked like a crescent moon.

We were in Boljoon when I took the above photo at around 9 AM.  I took it with our van’s tinted windows as my photo filter.  Our driver noticed my struggles in framing my shots, so he pulled over so I could take more photos.  Yey!

Here’s my favorite shot from today.
