This is an article on how to travel to and observe the solar eclipse.
A solar eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon, in which the sun is obscured by the ,oon. There are several types of solar eclipse:
Total eclipses are the most dramatic solar eclipse, a very strange and beautiful spectacle. A total solar eclipse occurs somewhere on Earth once or twice most years but is only visible from a narrow ribbon of the surface — the eclipse's path — with a partial eclipse experienced in a wider area. Partial eclipses are the least dramatic: unless one is viewing the eclipse deliberately it often just appears to be a somewhat dim day, as if overcast.
Here is the list of several total, annular and hybrid solar eclipses in near future.
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).
