A “Solar eclipse” is a celestial phenomenon where observers on the Earth see the Sun become dim when the Moon blocks out the light from the Sun totally or partially. When a solar eclipse occurs, the Moon is in its orbit between the Earth and the Sun such that the Sun, Moon and Earth are in a straight line.
