Partial Solar Eclipse of October 23, 2014

The partial solar eclipse on October 23, 2014 was not visible from Israel. :'(  But observers in the US had a good view. My good friend Linda in Iowa sent me this unusual photo of the partially eclipsed sun reflected in her window. The sun is still too bright in the direct image to be captured properly. It is overexposed, hiding the notch to the lower left. The image reflected in the window is dim enough for the total disk of the eclipsed sun to be seen. Nice job, Linda!
