The World Atlas of Solar Eclipse Paths features maps showing the paths of all total, annular and hybrid eclipses. Each map in the atlas covers a 20-year period. The atlas spans five millennia from -1999 to +3000 (2000 BCE to 3000 CE). For eclipse maps covering other decades, see World Atlas of Solar Eclipse Paths. Other Eclipse Maps

An eclipse is an awe-inspiring celestial event that drastically changes the appearance of the two biggest objects we see in our sky: our Sun and Moon. On Earth, people can experience solar eclipses when Earth, the Moon, and the Sun line up. Safety is the number one priority when viewing a solar eclipse.

An eclipse of the Sun happens when the New Moon moves between the Sun and Earth, blocking out the Sun's rays and casting a shadow on parts of Earth. The Moon's shadow is not big enough to engulf the entire planet, so the shadow is always limited to a certain area (see map illustrations below).

A solar eclipse happens when, at just the right moment, the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth. Sometimes the Moon only blocks part of the Sun?s light. This is called a partial solar eclipse. Other times, the Moon blocks all of the Sun?s light. This is called a total solar eclipse.

A solar eclipse happens when the Moon gets in the way of the Sun?s light and casts its shadow on Earth. That means during the day, the Moon moves over the Sun and it gets dark. Isn?t it strange that it gets dark in the middle of the day? This total eclipse happens about every year and a half somewhere on Earth.
