Caption: Total solar eclipse. Montage sequence of 35 images in a sequenced array running from first contact (top left) to totality (centre) and last contact (bottom 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. Either side, the diamond ring effect is seen as the Sun disappears and appears. 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.
