    Partial Eclipse At Sunrise


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     jraybould woke to the sun rising, and managed to photograph the hybrid eclipse from his apartment in Wilmington, Delaware. 'I'm on the fifteen floor and I knew I had a great view of the sunrise, so I set my alarm and crossed my fingers that the clouds would cooperate," he said. He says he only saw the eclipse for five minutes before it ducked behind the clouds. ' By that time it was too hard to observe anyway due to the increasing brightness of the sun,' he said. 'I'm glad the clouds cooperated. I've never seen a solar eclipse and just found out yesterday that I would have a prime opportunity this morning. I'd love to observe a total eclipse at some point, but I'll likely need to venture further from home for that.'
