The full phase of the eclipse was visible only from the North Atlantic and the Faroe Islands.
Unfortunately, in Bulgaria it was only a partial eclipse and lasted nearly four hours and 10 minutes. At Sofia city, partial eclipse began at 10:42 and lasted two hours and 16 minutes. During the maximum phase of the eclipse - in 11:49 and 5 seconds nearly 53% of the solar disk was covered by the moon.
I was able to photograph the eclipse near Targovishte, as shortly before, the fate was benevolent and thick clouds that prevailed in the sky all day break.
Generally speaking, a solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun hiding solar disk, ie the moon casts a shadow on the Earth's surface. If the moon hide the entire disk of the sun is observed a total eclipse, and when hides only part of it is called partial.
