Caption: Total solar eclipse. Montage sequence of 11 images from first contact (far left) to totality (centre) and last contact (far right) for a total solar eclipse. Total solar eclipses occur when the Moon passes directly in front of the Sun. Total solar eclipses usually occur less than once a year, and can only be seen from a small area of the Earth's surface. At totality, the solar atmosphere (corona, white) becomes visible. This total solar eclipse was observed from Palu, Indonesia on 9 March 2016. Totality lasted for around 2 minutes. The time from first contact to last contact was around 2.5 hours.
