Partial Eclipse of the Sun – Dhahran Hills

A partial solar eclipse occurred across a wide band of the world including eastern North America, northern South America, southern Europe, the Middle East and Africa on 3 November 2013. This is an occurrence allowing a view of the Sun that is partially blocked by the Moon. It occurred late in the afternoon in Dhahran and I took a few pictures just as the sun was about to set as this was the period when the moon blocked most of the sun from my location. I was unaware this was going to happen but saw the Sun with a big chunk missing. I knew there were no mountians or similar where the sun was setting so thought it may be an eclipse and looked on the internet when I got home where it said a partial solar eclipse was happening.
