Solar Eclipse January 2011 Pictures?
A partial solar eclipse occurred on Tuesday January 4, the first in 2011. The solar eclipse began at 12.10 p.m. and ended at 4.31 p.m.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, totally or partially blocking views of the sun's disc from observers on Earth.

The partial solar eclipse was greatest over northern Europe, with spectators in Sweden seeing as much as 85% of the sun's disc blacked out.

Are there pictures of the January eclipse? When is the next solar eclipse going to take place in 2011?

Tuesday's partial solar eclipse began over Algeria. According to Sky & Telescope Magazine, millions of skywatchers across Europe and parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia were expected to get a chance to observe the eclipse.

While poor weather ruined the year’s first solar eclipse for some of the Middle East and Europe, there were a few places with ideal conditions.

The next eclipse will happen on June 1 and will be visible in the eastern region of Asia, northern region of North America and some islands of the North Atlantic.

Northeast Sweden offered the best view: the moon covered almost 90% of the sun's diameter from that vantage point.

Here are some of the pictures taken by spectators of the January 2011 solar eclipse.
