A wonderdul Sunrise Eclipse is what I would call it: An array of colors, crepuscular rays, a moth eaten sun and the city proper. A partial solar eclipse gives such beautiful vistas even in a crowded city like Mumbai.

The eclipse was very nice here from Goa. Therotical sunrise was at 6h41, invisible because of haze,trees and buildings.

Weather forecast said it would be rainy, but thankfully the sky became partly clear when the moon passed in front of the sun. My watch was set to the GMT.
