I'm not usually the one to create threads but I find this too good of a topic to pass up. On November 3, there will be a partial solar eclipse that will be visible at sunrise in the eastern part of the US:

While I have witnessed a number of lunar eclipses (and even taken pictures of one through a telescope), I have never seen a solar eclipse of any kind. They just don't seem to happen often in the US. You can figure out if you can see the one on Nov 3 if you check this page out:

In the eastern US, it will be happening in the morning.

BTW, this is like a heads up 4 years in advance but there is going to be a KICK ASS (total) solar eclipse over the US on August 21, 2017:

That's cool. I've never seen a solar eclipse, and it would be nice... wait!

I don't live in the US...
