The eclipse will also be visible from North America, southern Europe and Africa.
A total eclipse occurs when the dark silhouette of the moon completely obscures the intensely bright light of the sun, allowing the much fainter solar corona to be visible.
During the maximum phase of the eclipse, the sun’s disk is completely blocked. The sun’s faint corona is then safely revealed to the naked eye.
