On November 3, 2013, a total hybrid solar eclipse will be visible
across Ethiopia, Kenya Uganda, and Democratic republic of Congo. This
eclipse will be annular only for a few kilometers at its start with
duration of less than 1 second. For the remainder it will be a very
narrow and short-lasting total eclipse, with maximum duration around
1½ minutes and with a maximum path width of only 58 km. So this
eclipse is unusual as its starts annular and ends total, never
reverting to annularity. With a   75 percent of possible sunshine,
strong confirmation of a pronounced decline in cloudiness toward the
eastern end of the eclipse track, though the value is so high as to
invite a little suspicion which results to a very high resolution
which makes it the best point to be during this time of event.
The special nature of this eclipse is that along the areas where the
annular eclipse is visible mountains along the lunar profile will
create a broken ring. The same will apply along the areas where
totality is expected but in reverse, lunar valleys along the profile
might let bright sections of the chromospheres and photosphere through
creating a multiple diamond ring effect.
uganda will be an exciting part of astrological history because the
country lies on the path of a hybrid solar Eclipse.
A total eclipse occurs when the dark silhouette of the moon completely
obsecures the intensely bright of the sun ,allowing the much fainter
solar corona to be visible.
According to< NASA > United States National Aeronautics and Space
Administration, 3 November around 13.00 hrs , during the maximum phase
of  a total eclipse , the sun,s disk will be completely blocked.
The sun,s faint corona is then seen by an human eye.During any one
eclipse,totality occurs at best in a narrow track on the surface of
the earth , uganda having best among others the best sight around
Lake Albert at Packwach in nebbi district in west nile near Murchision
fall national park, Gulu town , Soroti town ,kotido town in karamoja
3 november eclipse is even more unique because the central path begins
annular and ends total .
