As seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day clouds covered the eastern horizon on this March morning when the Sun rose over the expansive Touran Wildlife Reserve in northeastern Iran. On that day the Moon rose with the Sun, creating a widely enjoyed partial solar eclipse. Along with a mountainous horizon, the cloud cover lent a dramatic aspect to this eclipse sunrise as photographed here with a telephoto lens without using a filter.
