Solar Eclipse - January 4th, 2011

Today's partial solar eclipse was visible from Lyon this morning from approximately 7:50am to 10:30am, GMT+01:00.

I didn't 'see' the eclipse directly as I had no special lens or protective glasses. But the reflection from the neighbor's window let me see it without burning my eyes.

Here's the building across the street at 9:26am (cropped from a wider shot).



 And here's a close up of the window.


It's not a perfect image, but we can definitely see that the sun is being eclipsed.
