What is a Total Solar Eclipse?

A total solar eclipse is what happens when the moon passes between the earth and the sun. We're then within the shadow of the moon.

The sky dims, even in the middle of the day, and all that we on earth can see of the sun is the corona: the beautiful, long streams of light that emanate from the sun.
