Solar eclipse - South Africa

Children view the solar eclipse through special protective glasses in Cape Town, South Africa. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth so that the sun is wholly or partially obscured. Monday's partial eclipse was visible in the southern third of Africa, southeastern India, southeast Asia and the western part of Australia.
