Your views of space and stars
Partial Solar Eclipse viewed from St. Augustine, Florida
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
My ultimate goal going out in the brisk morning air was to catch site of the rare Partial Solar Eclipse that would be visible as the Sun rose on the 3rd of November 2013.
As I arrived at the pier I unloaded my gear, locked the truck and headed to select a spot to observe the Eastern horizon.
The sky was already become lighter and the clock was ticking towards sunrise as others gathered on the beach to observe this celestial phenomenon.
Although there were clouds low on the horizon there was a nice break in them before a second layer of clouds closed the gap.
Little did we know those clouds would make our view of the eclipse much more dramatic.
