Where is the Solar Eclipse visible?

NASA discloses:

“The hybrid eclipse of 2013 is visible from within a thin corridor, which traverses the North Atlantic and equatorial Africa. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon’s penumbral shadow, which includes eastern North America, northern South America, southern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.”

The Hybrid Solar Eclipse may be seen by people in the East Coast early morning.

Precautions in watching

If you plan to watch it, do not look at the eclipse directly with your bare eyes, from a telescope or a camera. This would harm your eyes. Ascertain that your gadget has a filtering device first before using.
