Partial Solar Eclipse Visible on Sunday Morning from the East Coast
November 1, 2013 | NASA

“The final event of 2013 is the most interesting eclipse of the year. It is one of the rare hybrid or annular/total eclipses in which some sections of the path are annular while other parts are total. The duality comes about when the vertex of the Moon’s umbral shadow pierces Earth’s surface at some locations, but falls short of the planet along other sections of the path.” Quoted from the NASA website.

People as far west as Pittsburgh should be able to see the eclipse. Observing from the east coast.

EYE SAFETY during a solar eclipse.
