The November 3, 2013 total solar eclipse – is when the moon passes between the sun and the earth and directly blocks the light of the sun. The total phase of the solar eclipse was very brief and it was only seen for 15 seconds. The partial eclipse started at 16:25 pm, the total eclipse occured at 17:25pm and the partial eclipse then ended at 18:27 pm.

The best observation place of the solar eclipse was terrain in the near of Lake Turkana in northern Kenya. Lake Turkana formerly known as Lake Rudolf, is a lake in the Kenyan Rift Valley, with its far northern end crossing into Ethiopia.  It is the world’s largest permanent desert lake and the world’s largest alkaline lake.

The local people were also collected to observe this phenomena together with our photo team.
