A partial, but deep (85%) solar eclipse happened on 4th of January 2011. I was observing this eclipse in Ulvila, Finland in the observatory of astronomy club Porin Karhunvartijat. This time me and other observers in Ulvila were lucky, because the phenomena was visible almost from the beginning to end and sky was clear during the whole duration of the eclipse! Only in the beginning there were some clouds, but they went away! It was fun to watch this eclipse, although it was only a partial eclipse!
