Today, on the night of Monday to Tuesday, November 13, will be the only one in this year's total solar eclipse, which can only be seen in the north of Australia and the Pacific.
The largest city in the way of the moon's shadow is Cairns, home to about 150,000 people, and which will bring together 80,000 scientists and tourists to observe the rare phenomenon.
Recall that in Moscow, a total solar eclipse can be observed February 25, 1476, and the next time it happens only October 16, 2126.
Solar eclipses occur when the moon is exactly between the Sun and Earth. The natural satellite of the Earth can completely close the disc daylight.
