This is an article on how to travel to and observe the solar eclipse.

Contents

Understand

A solar eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon, in which the Sun is obscured by the Moon (wholly - total eclipse or partialy - partial eclipse or annular eclipse). A total eclipse is a very strange and beautiful spectacle as an observer can see the Sun's atmosphere with the naked eye.

The event takes place several times a year, but is visible only for a few minutes or seconds and only from a narrow ribbon of Earth. That makes it a great travel destination with once-in-a-lifetime show.

See

Here is the list of several solar eclipses in near future. Total ones are emphasized.

Stay safe

Never look at the Sun with the unaided eye or with a telescope, not even for second and not even if only 1% of the Sun is visible. This may seriously damage your eye and even make you blind. Always use the dedicated filter, which you can buy in an astronomy shop or at least use a diskette or fully exposed and developed negative photographic film to protect your eye.

As the moon fully obscures the sun (only during total eclipses) it becomes safe to look directly and see the beautiful corona (Sun's atmosphere).
