Solar Eclipse from the East Coast to Africa

Posted: Updated:

A partial solar eclipse greeted the East Coast of the United States as we awakened Sunday morning. Unfortunately, the sun wasn't up early enough around here to see it as the hybrid eclipse quickly moved east over the Atlantic and made its way through northern South America and nearly the entire continent of Africa. You can see in the map below, the areas affected with the sunrise on the left showing the east coast of the U.S. followed by the trajectory all the way to sunset in eastern Africa on the right. Some amazing video and pictures were taken by skywatchers all over the place… Below is video of the sun rising to an eclipse in Key West, Florida followed by images from the Eastern Seaboard to the west coast of Africa.
