Solar Eclipse

|

There will be a partial solar eclipse on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 3. The only view we’ll get of it will be at sunrise. The obvious message of course is: don’t look at the sun. You should have the proper equipment.

But at the same time, it’s neat to see a crescent sun: Here, it will be about half-shaded by the moon. You’ll have to go to Africa to see a full eclipse.

Sky & Te;lescope Magazine has a good story about at at http://www.skyandtelescope.com/observing/home/November-3rds-Rare-Solar-Eclipse-227679011.html

Here’s a chart showing the eclipse along the Eastern Seaboard:
