March brings a surprise is that in some parts of the US and Europe, a solar eclipse will be visible, as reported by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory NASA on Wednesday in a video posted through your account in Twitter.

Amateur astronomers and other experts in the subject will travel to the Faroe Islands, Denmark, a small archipelago in the North Atlantic between Scotland, Norway and Iceland to observe this phenomenon in more detail that will last for two minutes 47 seconds.

In the video, NASA explains that an eclipse happens when a celestial body blocks the light from another body and can only happen in the phase of new moon, when the moon is between the earth and sun. Together they form a perfect straight line.

The US space agency, explained that there are four types of eclipses: total, partial, hybrid and void, fortunately the March 20 in various parts of the United States will appreciate the total.

With regard to why the eclipse is hidden around the world, NASA explained that because each of these events mean a path of totality that has some 16,093 miles long but only about 160 kilometers wide .

The only total eclipses have been seen in the US in the last 40 years occurred in 1979 in the northeastern US, and in 1991, in the region of Hawaii.
