Partial Solar Eclipse
The moon nibbles at the sun's disk during a solar eclipse over China's Changchun Province near dawn on Thursday.
Visible from much of Earth's remote northern reaches, the partial solar eclipse began over the eastern edge of Asia before moving "backward" across time zones to areas of Siberia, Scandinavia, Iceland, Canada and Alaska.
In some regions where the sun doesn't set in June, sky-watchers had the rare opportunity to see a midnight solar eclipse.
