Be prepared to watch a total solar eclipse when the moon conceals the sun, blackening the skies and forming a remarkable shadow.

The bad news: There are chances that you are among those billions of people who would not have a front-row seat in order to see the sight in the sky present week.

A total solar eclipse will be seen by the people in some parts of southeast Asia, on the other hand, people in some parts of American Samoa, Guam, Hawaii and Alaska will be able to see a partial solar eclipse, with respect to NASA.

This is widely known that the moon uses to pass between the sun and Earth every month, the marvel of a solar eclipse happens when the cosmic bodies are impeccably aligned, in a way that the moon blocks the sun completely. The solar eclipse will come to happen on 9th of March in Indonesia, Sumatra and then will be crossing the international date line, heading northeast over  the Pacific Ocean and finishing on March 8 afternoon according to local time, just short of Hawaii.


According to NASA plans, the period of total eclipse will be streamed live. It is expected to occur from 8:38 p.m. – 8:42 p.m. ET on the night of Tuesday. If you are not among those who will be deprived of this site, and lucky enough to watch this marvel of nature in person, it is recommended that you use protective eyewear. According to NASA, the eclipse must not be viewed by using telescope or binoculars under any circumstances. It is because the lens could strengthen the sun rays and damage the observer’s eyes.

According to NASA reports, the next solar eclipse that would be seen in the continental United States is predicted to be on 21st Aug., 2017.
