Partial Solar Eclipse

Location:Dacia School in Oradea, Romania 
Time: March 20, 2015
 Partial solar eclipses happen when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth, but they don't align in a perfectly straight line. Because of this, the Moon only partially covers the Sun's disc.
  In Oradea, Eclipse started at 10:44, with a maximum at 11:53 (local time). The end of eclipse was at 13:03. About 1000 students of Dacia School looked through telescope a part of solar disc covered by Moon.
