Total Solar Eclipse 2016

Total Solar Eclipse 2016 March 1st 16th.

People in parts of Southeast Asia will see the sun in a new light on March 8th, 2016 EST (March 9th, local time), during a total solar eclipse that will last over a minute in every location on its path.As the moon passes precisely between the sun and Earth – a relatively rare occurrence that happens only about once a year because of the fact that the moon and the sun do not orbit in the exact same plane – it will block the sun’s bright face, revealing the tenuous and comparatively faint solar atmosphere, the corona.
