A total solar eclipse will take place on March 9, 2016. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the Sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness.

Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth’s surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometers wide. It will be visible across an area of Pacific Ocean, beginning in Indonesia, and ending in the northern Pacific Ocean.

Palembang, Bangka and Belitung (Sumatra), Palang Karaya, Sampit and Balikpapan (Kalimantan), Luwuk, Poso and Palu (Sulawesi) and Ternate, Tidore and Halmahera (Maluku) is the only large cities we are able to experience a total eclipse. While other parts of Indonesia would only get a partial eclipse.
