Description:

This photo shows a view of the sun from Baja California during an eclipse on July 11, 1991, with the moon sliding in front of the sun.

On Aug. 1, 2008 a total solar eclipse was visible in parts of Canada, northern Greenland, the Arctic, central Russia, Mongolia and China. The eclipse swept across Earth in a narrow path that began in Canada’s northern territory of Nunavut and ended in northern China’s Silk Road region. Unfortunately, the eclipse was not visible in most of North America.
