Solar Eclipse - March 9, 2016 (Videos and Photos)

Partial Solar Eclipse in Legazpi, March 9, 2016

On March 9, 2016, millions of people across large parts of Indonesia and the Pacific Ocean have observed spectacular scenes of Solar Eclipse.

This happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, and the Moon partially or completely obscures the Sun.

Solar eclipses can occur up to five times a year, although that is rare. The last total solar eclipse was in March 20, 2015, visible from Svalbard and the Faroe Islands.

Here's some of the videos and pictures shared by news agency and people who witnessed this year's Solar Eclipse.

The total Solar Eclipse 2016 happened at 8:38 to 8:42 pm ET (9:38 to 9:42 am Philippine Time), according to NASA.
