What Causes a Solar Eclipse?
Our planet is exactly the right distance away from the Sun, and our Moon is just far enough away that if you were to see them side by side in the sky, they would look precisely the same size. Every now and then, the moon happens to pass directly between the earth and the sun. When this happens, it is what is known as a solar eclipse. The moon goes in front of the sun, blocking out all of its light, except for the corona (the sun’s atmosphere). What you see in the sky during the totality of a solar eclipse is a pitch-black sphere with a ring of white fire around it, and the sight is absolutely magnificent. This event will not happen again in the United States for decades, so you will not want to miss it!
