Total Solar Eclipse 2016 (Google Doodle, Photo & Video)

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a total solar eclipse! A solar eclipse happens when the moon's orbit crosses between the Earth and the Sun, as Doodler Olivia Huynh shows in today's animation. Because the moon blocks the Sun's light, it casts a shadow on part of the world. In Hawaii, only about 63% of the Sun will be blocked, which is called a Partial Solar Eclipse. 

Today, the total solar eclipse will fall on the south Pacific Ocean and parts of Indonesia, Sumatra, Borneo and the islands of Sulawesi and Halmahera. These countries will be able to see the moon block the Sun this evening, around 5:30 local time. (Google Doodle Today)
