Across the world, sky watchers have been treated to the sight of a partial solar eclipse. Visible for three hours, the best views were apparently in north eastern Sweden. The moon's shadow hides between a half and two thirds of the sun's surface, turning it into a yellow or red crescent. For most of Europe it started at sunrise, but in central Russia and China it occurs at sunset. This year's second partial solar eclipse will take place on June 1. Astronomers say there will be a total eclipse of the sun in November 2012.

Footage used in this video was taken in Moscow, Giza (Egypt), Jerusalem and Ramallah (West Bank).
