A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun.
Some states will have a full eclipse. but there will only be a partial eclipse in our area. Despite that, the event will be great to experience. It is estimated that several hundred million people throughout North America alone will observe the eclipse.
Another full eclipse will not occur again until 2045.
