Sky watching enthusiasts enjoyed a partial solar eclipse that graced the skies on Tuesday.

A solar eclipse happens when the moon casts a shadow on the earth as it passes between the earth and the sun.

A partial eclipse, more frequent than a total eclipse, occurs when the earth passes within the penumbra of the moon.

Sky watchers and students were gathered at events to observe the partial solar eclipse in Turkey's capital Ankara and the mainly Kurdish southeast province of Diyarbakir.

"I have never witnessed a solar eclipse before. This is such a mesmerizing feeling," skywatcher Didem Azra Ozdemir said, adding that he would love to see a full solar eclipse."

People were urged not to look directly at the sun during the eclipse without proper eyewear to avoid hurting their eyes.

The eclipse was seen at its best in northeast Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and western Asia, because of the time-zone difference.
