  • [01] Partial solar eclipse viewed in Greece

    (ANA-MPA) -- Viewers throughout Greece took up positions to view Tuesday morning's partial solar eclipse, the first of the new year, although overcast skies prevented them from enjoying the phenomenon in all its glory.

    The eclipse was partially visible in the greater Athens area and parents took their children to the Athens Planetarium where members of the Hellenic Astronomical Society and amateur astronomers had set up telescopes and were on hand to explain the phenomenon. (ANA-MPA)

    The partial solar eclipse commenced in Athens shortly before 9:00 a.m., peaked at around 10:20, and was completed at noon. (ANA-MPA)
