A partial solar eclipse occurred on November 13–14, 1993. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A partial solar eclipse occurs in the polar regions of the Earth when the center of the Moon's shadow misses the Earth. It was visible at sunrise over parts of Australia on November 14th (Sunday), and ended at sunset over the southern tip of South America on November 13th (Saturday).
