The World Watches The Eclipse

Television aerials are silhouetted against a darkened sky as the sun is covered by the moon during a solar eclipse in Gernika, northern Spain, October 3, 2005. An annular eclipse differs from a total eclipse in that the moon appears too small to completely cover the sun. As a result, the moon is surrounded by an intensely brilliant ring or annulus formed by the outer perimeter of the sun's disk. The last annular eclipse visible from Spain took place on the 1st of April 1764 and the next one will occur on the 26th of January 2028. REUTERS/Vincent West
