Caption: Total solar eclipse. Sequence of images of the sun during a total solar eclipse. 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. Also seen are Baily's beads, a phenomenon caused by craters in the surface of the moon allowing beads of light to shine through to Earth. 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 March 2005, from Panama.
