So what is a Total Solar Eclipse?

Typically,  a normal eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth in which the Sun will totally or partly be obscuring / overshadowing the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth .

A TOTAL solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent size is larger than the Sun’s blocking out all the direct sunlight.

When this happens during the day time when it is normally bright and sunny outside, there will be TOTAL DARKNESS!

Now isn’t that awesome?

Get ready to observe in the US completely darkness for an estimated 7 minutes 31 sometimes usually less but does it matter?
