Crescent Sun

Last night, there was a partial solar eclipse when the new moon passed between the Sun and the Earth, resulting in the moon covering up to 93% of the sun. This creates a magnificent array of crescent sunsets like the one above, as well as rings of fire which is when the moon covers almost all of the Sun, except for its outer edge. Unfortunately, suckas can't view this here in North America, as they can only be witnessed across the Indian Ocean from South Africa to Indonesia.
