What is a Total Solar Eclipse

A total solar eclipse occurs when the sun, moon and earth lineup, turning day into night for several minutes and revealing the night sky, a 360-degree sunset, and the sun's corona shining from behind the moon. With the proper solar viewing glasses and safety measures, viewers may even look directly at the sun. A total solar eclipse is a bucket list item for many mature enthusiasts, stargazers, and photographers and past viewers say it is one of the most thrilling things they have ever seen.
