A total solar eclipse will occur on July 22, 2028. 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. The central line of the path of the eclipse will pass the CBD of Sydney NSW Australia where the eclipse will have a duration of over three minutes. It will also cross Dunedin, New Zealand.
