A solar eclipse occurs when a portion of the Earth is engulfed in a shadow cast by the Moon which fully or partially blocks ("occults") sunlight. This occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth are aligned. Such alignment coincides with a new moon (syzygy) indicating the Moon is closest to the ecliptic plane. In a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon. In partial and annular eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured.
Solar eclipse of July 2, 2019. A total solar eclipse will occur at the Moon's ascending node of the orbit on July 2, 2019 with a magnitude of . 459. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun's, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness.
A total solar eclipse occurs when the new Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, and totally blocks out the Sun. Animations of Solar and Lunar Eclipses worldwide. Eclipses are normally named after their darkest phase. If a solar eclipse is total at any point on Earth, it is called a total solar eclipse, even though it's seen as a partial solar eclipse in most areas. However, there is an exception, the hybrid solar eclipse. This type of eclipse is also known as an annular-total eclipse because it changes from an annular to a total solar eclipse, and/or vice versa, along its path. Animation: Next eclipse in your city. Complete Solar Eclipse Has 5 Phases.
While total solar eclipses are not rare-they occur twice every 3 years on average and can be seen from some part of the Earth-a total eclipse of the Sun that can be seen from the American West Coast to the American East Coast occurs less frequently.

This interactive Google map shows the path of the Total Solar Eclipse of 2019 Jul 02. The northern and southern path limits are blue and the central line is red. You MUST be somewhere within the central path (between the blue lines) to see the total phase of the eclipse. The eclipse is longest on the central line (red). The yellow lines crossing the path indicate the time and position of maximum eclipse at 10-minute intervals. The green marker labeled GE is the point of Greatest Eclipse. The magenta marker labeled GD is the point of Greatest Duration.

An awesome astronomical event-a total solar eclipse-will be visible today from coast-to-coast for the first time in nearly a century. Astronomers and eclipse chasers describe the rare spectacle of a total eclipse as euphoric and life-changing, but only places that fall in the direct path of the moon’s shadow will see the sun completely shrouded by the moon. See the huge crowds turning out in LA to watch the solar eclipse. Los Angeles is not one of those lucky cities positioned in the path of totality. Solar eclipses only occur twice a year, and to see them, you have to be on the right side of Earth. The last solar eclipse visible in LA was in 2014. After Monday, you’ll have to wait six years to see another one, according to Reitzel. Eclipses, even partial ones, are reminders, he says, that we live in a universe, that we have a moon, and that we understand, very well, celestial mechanics and physics.
