A total solar eclipse will occur on April 9, 2043. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across the surface of the Earth, while a partial solar eclipse will be visible over a region thousands of kilometres wide.

Visibility[edit]

It will be seen fully from Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula. It will be visible partially throughout Canada, Greenland and Iceland. It will be also partially visible from the western part United States including Alaska and Hawaii.
