Caption: Watching solar eclipse. Young boy using special protective viewing glasses to observe a solar eclipse (upper right). They are designed to block most of the light from the Sun. Observing the Sun without any protection can damage the eyes and cause blindness. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves in front of the Sun and obscures its surface. This 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.
