A rare hybrid (annular/total) eclipse, the 23th of Saros 143, takes place on November 3rd. Greatest eclipse occurs in the Atlantic southwest of Liberia at 12:47:36 UT. Maximum totality lasts for 1 minutes and 39 seconds. The final moments of the partial eclipse are visible from eastern North America. A portion of the Sun’s lower limb will be in eclipse as the Sun rises. For more on the eclipse, see the article on pages 60 to 63 of the November issue of Astronomy and http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/OH/OH2013.html#SE2013Nov03H

Chance favors the prepared mind.
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
