Rare Hybrid Solar Eclipse in Lagos

DSC_0243Between the rain clouds, the moon partially blocks the sun in Lagos, November 3, 2013 at 2:30pm. It is a rare hybrid eclipse due to “ an annular eclipse along the very first 15 seconds of its track before transitioning to a total as the Moon’s shadow sweeps just close enough to the Earth to cover the disk of the Sun along the remainder of its track.”- David Dickinson, universetoday.com.
