After been hidden by a thin layer of clouds , the partially eclipsed Sun reappeared briefly and then set under the horizon of the Rio de la Plata. Notice that the upper part of the sun is "flat", and this is not because of refraction, but because the moon still was there, eclipsing the top of the sun at sunset.
