Caption: Total solar eclipse. Sequence of images of the sun during a total solar eclipse. The disc of the moon is seen moving over the disc of the sun from left to right. At totality (centre) the moon fits over the sun and only the sun's corona (atmosphere) is visible. The moment of totality lasts for only a few minutes. Total solar eclipses usually occur less than once a year and can only be seen from a small area of the Earth's surface. Photographed in August 2008 from Siberia, Russia.
