For many, solar eclipses are a very relaxing sight that helps them appreciate the beauty of nature. They don’t come around often, but when they do the sight is as beautiful and unique as it is rare. Solar eclipses are natural events that take place when the moon orbits itself between Earth and the Sun, blocking out sunlight. Eclipses can only be viewed from certain parts of the world and are sometimes called occultations.

Eclipses are able to occur because the distance between the Sun and the Earth is about 400 times the distance between the Moon and the Sun. The Sun’s diameter is approximately 400 times larger than the Moon’s. With all these factors in play, it is then possible for the Moon to give the illusion that it’s the same size as the Sun and effectively casts a large shadow across Earth.

There are a few various types of solar eclipses. Partial solar eclipses occur when the moon doesn’t line up perfectly with the Sun and some of the Sun’s light is still able to reach earth. In instances such as this, the Sun appears to wane the same way a crescent moon would. An annual solar eclipse happens when the Moon and Sun are lined up exactly but there’s some disparity in terms of distance between the planets. The Earth is either too far from the Moon or too close to the Sun.
Astronomy MagazineTotal solar eclipses are the most visually stunning of all, and also the rarest. In these cases, the moon completely covers the entire Sun when viewed properly. It’s essentially the same as it being night out when an area is affected by a “Totality”. It’s cool to see as well as disorienting, so people tend to make a big deal when a total eclipse comes to town.
Each year there are between two and five solar eclipses, drawing the attention of stargazers and space enthusiasts alike. They’re often brief, as the speed of the Moon as it moves across the Sun is about 1,400 miles per hour. The longest Totalities have been known to last up to seven and a half minutes, and only occur about every 18 months. For some space fans, a Totality is almost like a large competitive sporting match.
As it turns out, there’s supposed to be a total eclipse in 2017. For everything you need to know about watching this eclipse, read on.
