Total Eclipse: moment of sudden night

Sudden night during the total solar eclipse timelapse, Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, 9.41, 20.03.2015.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun and blocks out the direct light of the sun. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon blocks out the sun completely, forming a shadow on the earth. For this to occur, the sun, the earth and the moon come in a straight line in their orbits and it will seem like the moon has covered the sun.
On 20 March 2015 a total solar eclipse covered the Faroe Islands in darkness at 9.41 am.
