Caption: Total solar eclipse. This is totality, where the disc of 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 on 22nd July 2009, during the longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century, from the maximum totality region in the Pacific Ocean.
