Solar Eclipse 20/03/15

This is a video showing the eclipse 

So this years eclipse was said to be the rarest of all time. The next full/total eclipse will be on the 21st of  August 2017. However we have a lunar eclipse on the 4th of April which will be visible to mainly Africa and Asia. The next total lunar eclipse that will be visible in Europe will be on the 28th of September 2015.

So what is a solar eclipse?

A solar eclipse is a rare event( when in total eclipse) which involves the moon being in a certain position and distance.nice away or close to the. When seen from Earth we see a circle around the moon when watching a total solar eclipses occur in different places and different times each time it occurs.

I think the eclipses are fantastic opportunities to learn and get inspiration from. I strongly think that schools should create a fundraising day each year minimum in order to raise money that can be invested into equipment needed to look at these astronomical wonders. It is something that students and many other people can learn from
