Sun-Earth Day Presents: Eclipse, In a Different Light


Live Webcast from Turkey, March 29, 2006.

On March 29, 2006

On March 29, 2006, a total solar eclipse occurred as the moon moves directly between the earth and the sun. The moon's shadow fell on the earth, first darkening the eastern tip of Brazil, and then moving across the Atlantic Ocean to make landfall in Ghana, Africa. It continued moving northeast through Niger, Nigeria, Libya, Egypt, across the Mediterranean and into Turkey, where the NASA and Exploratorium team were waiting.

Live@Exploratorium and NASA's Sun-Earth Connection traveled into the path of totality to capture that momentous event. Watch the ARCHIVED Eclipse Webcast and Telescope-only video!

Eclipse Fact

Every eclipse begins at sunrise at some point in its track and ends at sunset about half way around the world from the start point.
