A partial solar eclipse occurred on October 11, 1931. 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 partial solar eclipse occurs in the polar regions of the Earth when the center of the Moon's shadow misses the Earth. This event was visible as a partial solar eclipse from southern South America, and parts of Antarctica.
