Sunrise tomorrow on the East Coast will be interesting, as the sun will rise in the middle of a partial solar eclipse.

Sunrise tomorrow on the East Coast will be interesting, as the sun will rise in the middle of a partial solar eclipse.

Technically speaking, the partial eclipse could be visible as far inland as, say, Tennessee. Sky & Telescope projects that 57 percent of the sun’s diameter could be covered over at sunrise in Boston, 48 percent in New York, 44 percent in Philadelphia, 35 percent in Washington, and 36 percent in Miami. But you’d have to have a clear view of a flat horizon — and no matter where you are on the East Coast, the partial eclipse will be over within an hour after sunrise.
