A partial solar eclipse will cover most of North America late Thursday afternoon and early evening October 23rd. In the Eastern USA the sun will be partially eclipsed by the moon during sunset which will make for photographic opportunities with a proper filter on your camera.
The Partial Eclipse of the Sun will occur on Thursday October 23, 2014 which will be observable from 49 states except Hawaii! Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island will technically "see" the eclipse, but it is very unlikely, since the eclipse will begin seconds before sunset.
Above is a link to a drop and drag solar eclipse calculator integrated with Google maps. Drag the icon to your location and local times will appear. You will need to covert the time from London or what is called Universal Time. In the Pacific and Arizona, subtract 7 hours. Using CDT, subtract 6 hours, and on the East Coast 5 hours to get local time.

|Solar Eclipse Glasses|
Below is a photo of a partial solar eclipse over El Paso, TX a few years ago. A solar filter was placed on the camera telephoto lens.
Here is a little introductory video about the Oct 23 partial solar eclipse and information about solar viewing glasses. The solar eclipse glasses are shown being used by solar eclipse observers.
