Sorry, but only a chunk of the sun rises Sunday. An eclipse will be underway at dawn.
About one-third of the sun will be obscured by the moon on the horizon at Charleston in a rare “hybrid” eclipse, which is one that is a total eclipse in one location but a partial in another.
It will last about 25 minutes here, said Terry Richardson, College of Charleston astronomy professor, ending a few minutes after 7 a.m. when the sun is only 5 degrees above the horizon. It will be visible only along the Eastern seaboard.
You will need a flat horizon, such as the ocean, to see it, if weather permits.
