On Sunday, November 3, 2013 the moon’s shadow swept across the Earth passing over equatorial Gabon in Western Africa, Congo, Uganda, Kenya and finally Ethiopia creating a total eclipse of the sun. Total solar eclipses are rare at any particular location because totality exists only along a narrow path on the Earth's surface traced by the Moon's umbra. One of the best places to observe the total solar eclipse (where you see a diamond ring effect) was in Uganda. Most people will only be lucky enough to see this event once in their lifetime. Pakwach, Uganda.
