Partial solar eclipse visible in Valley during Thursday sunrise

Weather Specials

(WKBN) – A partial solar eclipse could be seen in our area Thursday morning.

The sun appeared to have a dark shadow on part of its surface around 6:15 a.m. It looked like it had a bite taken out of it.

The annular eclipse happens when the moon moves in front of the sun, blocking most of it except a ring around the edges.

In the Valley, we didn’t see the ring because from where we are, the sun, moon and earth didn’t exactly line up.
