Halocho #716 - What Bracha on an Eclipse?

Tomorrow (Tuesday morning) there will be is a partial sun eclipse in Israel and surrounding areas.

There is no special Bracha said on seeing an eclipse, though on meteors and comets one says "Oseh Ma'ase Breishis":

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה', אֱ-לקֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם
 עוֹשֶׂה מַעֲשֶׂה בְּרֵאשִׁית

Blessed are You... Who makes the work of creation.
