    Interesting image of the eclipse over Atlanta taken by Jill Gorman. This was about as far west as it could be seen.

    I was lucky enough to be able to travel to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to see the rare hybrid eclipse of the sun this past Sunday morning, Nov. 3. The eclipse was occurring as the sun rose and for a short while afterwards. Unfortunately, from my vantage point, there was a pesky low-cloud deck to the east-southeast of my locale that did not permit me to get a great view of this spectacular solar event nor photograph it like others I know.

    Fortunately, many of the terrific followers of AccuWeather Astronomy on facebook were able to take and share many photographs. Thanks to everyone who sends us photos of not only this event, but any astronomy-related event. We received many other fantastic images of this rare hybrid eclipse that I simply did not have the room to share.
