A total solar eclipse will occur next Monday (8/4), but it will not be visible from all parts of the world. This time, the lucky ones will be observers from Mexico, Canada and the United States, who will be able to follow the phenomenon in full or in part.

In Brazil, the eclipse will not be visible, just as it will not be visible in the rest of the countries located in the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth. However, an annular solar eclipse should occur on October 2 this year, which will be visible to Brazilians.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is positioned between the Sun and the Earth, blocking sunlight from reaching the Earth. When the Moon blocks only part of the Sun’s light, the eclipse is called partial or annular. When, in turn, it blocks all the Sun’s light, there is a total eclipse.

In a total solar eclipse, the Earth, the Moon and the Sun align in an exact position, which causes the Sun to be covered by the Moon from those observing from Earth. In a partial eclipse, the three stars are not completely aligned.

According to the North American space agency (Nasa), the first place in continental North America to see the total eclipse will be the Pacific coast of Mexico, around 3:07 pm (Brasília time).
