This Sunday morning, early risers along the east coast of the United States will see the sun rise while it's in the midst of a partial solar eclipse. Because viewing may be a tricky, you'll need an open view of the eastern horizon so it's best to be at the beach. As the sun rises, it will appear to have a bite missing from it's bottom.
