AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - The sun rose as a partial eclipse around 5:24 a.m.

A sunrise eclipse like this has only happened twice since the 1800s.

This one is an annular eclipse, meaning the moon is not quite big enough to cover the sun completely.

If you’re going to watch all of the sunrise eclipse, be safe and wear the special glasses.

Experts say if you don’t have the glasses, watch for only 10-15 seconds and look away.

If you missed it Thursday morning, Maine is expected to see a total eclipse in 2024.
