Despite the overcast skies and the large cloud cover in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines, there were snapshots of the rare annular solar eclipse…if you were patient enough to wait.
For just a few seconds or more, the astronomical event was visible when it approached its maximum coverage.
And during times when the maximum eclipse is all covered by the clouds, aerial shots of a village in the city (Bulua) basically showed the low lighted surroundings which was even made ‘darker’ with the overcast skies.
And just as the eclipse ended around 4:00pm, there was temporary radiance from the sun but the cloudy conditions continued towards dusk and evening.
Here’s a photo of the maximum eclipse commented in our page.
