NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — People across the Tri-State Area were treated to a special sunrise Thursday.
The sun appeared as a partial solar eclipse around 5:24 a.m. and stayed visible for about an hour.
People gathered at beaches and piers around the area to catch a glimpse.
CBS2’s Lonnie Quinn spoke with students in Westport, Connecticut, and John Elliott found other spectators on the Jersey Shore.

An eclipse like this has only happened twice since the 1800s, and the next won’t be until 2079 — 58 years from now.
