March will bring a total solar eclipse, visible in parts of the US and Europe, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory NASA on Wednesday in a video posted on Twitter reported.
Amateur astronomers and experts on travel to the Faroe Islands, Denmark (a small archipelago in the North Atlantic between Scotland, Norway and Iceland), to observe in detail the phenomenon, which would last two minutes and 47 seconds.
An eclipse occurs when a celestial body blocks the light from another body and can only happen in New Moon phase, ie when the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun and forms a straight line, NASA reported.
The US space agency explained that there are four types of eclipses: total, partial, hybrid and void; on March 20 will be complete and may be seen in parts of the United States.
Why can not you see around the world? NASA explains that this is because each of these events mean a path of totality, which has about 16,093 miles long but only about 160 kilometers wide.
The only total eclipses have been seen in the US in the last 40 years occurred in 1979 in the northeastern US, and in 1991, in the region of Hawaii.
