Total Solar Eclipse 2016 watch online 9 march

Though total solar eclipses occur once every 18 months or so, they are only visible from very specific, and sometimes very remote, locations. Such is the case this March, when totality will be visible only in certain island nations in the North Pacific.

Solar eclipses occur when the Moon’s orbit passes directly between the Earth and the Sun, obscuring part or all of the solar disk. There are several types of solar eclipses, including annular and partial eclipses (when the Moon only obscures a portion of the Sun), and the incredible sight of a Total Solar Eclipse.
So why are there different types of eclipses? The type of eclipse depends on a number of factors having to do with the distance of the Earth from the Sun, and the distance of the Moon from the Earth. Since the orbit of both the Earth around the Sun and the Moon around the Earth are elliptical, the distances between the three bodies changes. When those orbits don’t match up perfectly, you end up with a partial or annular eclipse. But when they match up perfectly — when the Sun and Moon appear the same size in the sky — that’s when the magic happens, if only for a brief few moments.

Since ancient times people have followed the special signs, rituals for days a solar eclipse.
False prophets, possess knowledge of upcoming eclipses, used them to manipulate their predictions, scorning the less knowledgeable masses.
At 20 and 21 century based on knowledge acquired in the course of the centuries old observation of the movement of the Moon and Earth’s orbital axis changes, people have developed a system for predicting the date of future eclipses and their monitoring.
In the digital age, everyone can find an astronomical program and see how eclipses occur and what circumstances are needed for this.
But Eclipse was escorted to secrecy and to this day, Mystery, disturbing minds, as these scholars and ordinary people.
What energy and metaphysical processes affect the person during solar eclipses, has not formed a consensus that would suit everyone.
Who study and feels the influence of such processes, someone is afraid of new discoveries and the unknown and continues to deny.
