Caption: Solar eclipse. Amateur astronomer observing a total solar eclipse seen over trees and a temple. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon completely blocks the Sun's disc causing darkness during the day. The shielding effect of the Moon allows observations of the Sun's outer atmosphere (corona), which is normally invisible due to the brightness of the Sun's surface. The corona is a wide layer of very thin hydrogen gas at very high temperature. Photographed during the eclipse of 24 October 1995 seen from Dundlod in Rajasthan, India.
