What is an eclispe?
So a solar eclipse is when the moon blocks the sun during the new moon phase. When you are standing in the umbra you see a total solar eclipse and when your standing in the penumbra you see a total solar eclipse.
The sun looks so cool!
Be careful, you could damage your vision if you don't use special glasses or other safe ways to view the eclipse
