Caption

Observing the solar eclipse of 17 April 1912. People in the streets of Paris, France, watching the Sun as it is covered by the Moon. Total solar eclipses usually occur less than once a year, and can only be seen from a small area of the Earth's surface. Centuries can pass before another total solar eclipse is visible from the same location. This eclipse was a hybrid event, starting and ending as an annular eclipse, with only a small portion of totality. Photographed by French photographer Eugene Atget (1857-1927).
