East Coasters, this might be the best use of that extra hour you'll gain overnight by setting the clocks back: Get up at sunrise and check out the sky. (NBC News advises how to do so safely.) Weather permitting, you'll be treated to a solar eclipse. This one is what's known as a hybrid solar eclipse: "That is, the eclipse appears fleetingly as an annular—or ring eclipse—at its start in the Atlantic Ocean and becomes a brief total eclipse later on," explains EarthSky. Those on the East Coast can expect to see it as a partial eclipse. (You can dig into worldwide viewing maps at Universe Today, or plan to watch online coverage here.)
