A total solar eclipse happens when the moon passes in front of the sun. Totality will last just a few minutes. At this time the moon will hang a black dot surrounded by the sun's corona. "The effect is phenomenal" according to Daniel Oppliger, President and Owner of Tropical Sails Corp. “Most people don't realize the sun has an atmosphere. During totality you can see it.”
