Observers look at the partially eclipsed Sun with special safe solar-filtered glasses during the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse from Bandit Springs, Oregon. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon, in its orbit around the Earth, moves in front of the Sun, completely blocking the light of the Sun's photosphere. The narrow path on the Earth where the Moon's umbral shadow falls experiences a total solar eclipse.
