What's an eclipse?
An eclipse occurs when one astronomical object, such as a moon or planet, moves into the shadow of another one.
What is a solar eclipse?
The Moon orbits around the Earth, and sometimes the Moon is between the Sun and Earth. When this happens, the Moon blocks the light of the Sun from reaching Earth, causing a solar eclipse. During a solar eclipse, the Moon casts a shadow onto Earth.
What is a total solar eclipse?
A total solar eclipse is visible from a small area on Earth. The sky becomes very dark, as if it were night. For a total eclipse to occur, the Sun, Moon and Earth must be in a direct line.
