Rare “Hybrid” Solar Eclipse, visible in Greece too, Nov 3/2013

A solar eclipse will today place today Sunday, November 3th, 2013. This eclipse, the last for 2013, is called a  a hybrid solar eclipse because it appears  fleetingly as an annular – or ring eclipse – at its start in the Atlantic Ocean and becomes a brief total eclipse later on. Along the long yet narrow central eclipse path, one can see the total eclipse, but much of the world outside that exclusive path will see a partial eclipse.
