A solar eclipse takes place when the moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thus completely or partially hindering the light of the Sun for the Earth.  This will be an “Total Solar Eclipse that will show a ring of fire during the eclipse. People will see the disc of the moon move gradually in front of the sun until it covers it totally, leaving only a burning ring of light around the border.
