Hybrid Solar Eclipse on November 3
Posted on November 01, 2013 at 10:14:38 pm
On Sunday, November 3, 2013, there will be a hybrid solar eclipse. That is, the eclipse appears fleetingly as an annular – or ring eclipse – at its start in the Atlantic Ocean and becomes a brief total eclipse later on. Along the long yet narrow central eclipse path, one can see the total eclipse, but much of the world outside that exclusive path will see a partial eclipse on Sunday. The partial eclipse will be visible from far-eastern North America, the Caribbean, northern South America, southern Greenland, the Atlantic Ocean, southern Europe, Africa, Madagascar and the Middle East. Keep in mind that you’ll absolutely need proper eye protection to watch this or any solar eclipse. Please use caution to prevent blindness or severe eye injury!
No matter where you reside within the eclipse viewing area, the solar eclipse will take place sometime between sunrise and sunset on Sunday, November 3, 2013.
