Eclipse of the Sun – 1 Sept 2016

A solar eclipse is a rare opportunity to see the solar system in action.

For a short time, the Moon passed between us and the Sun, and instead of seeing the Sun as a round disc, it had a “bite” out of it. This “bite” is the Moon, and the size of the “bite” changes as the Moon slowly moved along.

This eclipse was visible from almost anywhere in Africa!
