What a sight!

Malaysians gazed in wonder as they got a rare treat to witness a special astronomical event earlier today where the partial solar eclipse was visible in parts of Southeast Asia.

The moon began to move between the Earth and sun at 6:19 am (2319 GMT Tuesday), before a total eclipse became visible about an hour later in western parts of the country.

The sun then went entirely dark in a broad arc right across the country, to the eastern Maluku Islands, before the eclipse swept out across the Pacific Ocean.

Partial eclipses were also visible over other parts of Asia and Australia, with schoolchildren in Kuala Lumpur donning special eclipse-viewing glasses to watch the spectacle and crowds gathering early in Singapore to witness the phenomenon.
