Total Solar Eclipse Wednesday

Longest total solar eclipse of the 21st Century...
happening NOW!

*photo from here

This will be the longest total solar eclipse until 2132! (6min 39sec at max point). Kids, out there, this means that The Moon is caught between the sun and the Earth while each of them moves along their fixed orbits. Astronomers hope the eclipse would help to improve their understanding of the sun as it would offer a prolonged view of the sun's corona.
