Solar Eclipse 2016: Moon passes between Earth and the Sun tonight
Tonight is your opportunity to witness an amazing natural phenomenon, as the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, plunging parts of our planet into semi-darkness.
8March – 9March total Solar Eclipse
The first and only total solar eclipse of 2016 rolls across the sky this week. Total solar eclipses — when the moon’s shadow blocks the sun entirely — are spectacular events, highly anticipated by astronomers, astrophotographers and casual spectators alike.
