At the same time one day the sky in the east was perceived to be covered with a thick darkness, and from daybreak to noon the stars were visible throughout; and, as an addition to these terrors, while the light of heaven was thus withdrawn, and the world almost buried in clouds, men, from the length of the eclipse, began to believe that the sun had wholly disappeared. Presently, however, it was seen again like a new moon, then like a half-moon, and at last it was restored entire.
An annular eclipse of the Sun occurred on 28 August, 0360 AD UT Old Style, with maximum eclipse at 03:32 UT. A small annular eclipse covered only 93% of the Sun in a very broad path, 252 km wide at maximum, and lasted 7 minutes and 59 seconds. (© NASA / moonblink.info)
