Total Eclipse of the Sun – 1st August 2008

Viewers in Chine were treated to a cracking eclipse of the Sun last Friday and NewScientist were on hand to film it:

There is a great explanation and animation of how solar eclipses happen on the BBC website.

Exploratorium have a full-length clip on their webcast page, as well as a nice animation of how eclipses occur. (I’ll give Exploratorium its own post very soon).
