Solar Eclipse

A Solar Eclipse is a type of eclipse that occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon fully or partially blocks ("occults") the Sun. This can happen only at new moon, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction as seen from Earth in an alignment referred to as syzygy. In a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon. In partial and annular eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured.

2016 Total Solar Eclipse

A total solar eclipse occurred on March 9, 2016.

The eclipse was witnessed by thousands of sky gazers early in the morning at the Indonesian archipelago. Muslim prayers and tribal rituals were performed. The moon began to move between the Earth and sun at 6:19 am (2319 GMT Tuesday), and about an hour later direct sunlight was entirely blocked out in western parts of Indonesia.

Partial eclipses were also visible over other parts of Asia and Australia.
