Video of a full solar eclipse on March 9 by Panasonic Eclipse Live

Thousands of people in Indonesia had a chance to watch a terrific show of a total solar eclipse on Wednesday, March 9.


Approximately ten thousand tourists came to the archipelago to observe the rare phenomenon: next time it will happen in this region only in 2049. The moon started to eclipse the star at 6.19 a.m. local time and covered the sun disk an hour later.

Solar eclipses occur two times a year, when our natural satellite passes between the sun and earth casting a shadow on the planet. These are mostly partial eclipses when only a part of the sun is covered by the moon. Full eclipses take place more seldom. For example, the previous one was in March, 2015.

Interestingly, people all over the world could observe this astronomic event thanks to the Panasonic Eclipse Live by Solar Power project which set up a live stream.

I was expecting for the eclisped Sun to reappear on the oppisite side but then when it appeared at the top, I realized that all the objects (Sun, Moon and Earth) are moving in different directions at the same time (at incredable speeeds)
