Partial solar eclipse today

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) The moon will be passing between the Earth and the sun on Thursday in a partial solar eclipse. People throughout North America will get in on the action, with those in the north getting the best seats. Unfortunately, New England is left out of the fun; the sun will set there just before the moon's shadow touches down. 

If you plan to view the eclipse in person, remember: Don't look directly at the sun. It may be partly obscured, but all it takes is a sliver of sun on an unprotected eye to cause eye damage or even blindness.
