In the East at Dawn, an Eclipse on Sunday (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/02/science/space/sunday-morning-surprise-a-solar-eclipse.html?_r=0)
By KENNETH CHANG


On Sunday in the eastern United States, the sun will rise with a large bite taken out of it by the moon — a partial eclipse at dawn.


EDIT:

WARNING


This is probably the most important part of this website. If you ever want to view a solar eclipse—whether it’s total, annular, or partial—the first thing you must know is this:

Never view the sun with the naked eye or with any optical device, such as binoculars or a telescope!
