Friday’s Trifecta : Supermoon, Solar Eclipse, March Equinox! This is truly a rare combination.

Today marks this year’s first and only total eclipse of the sun, when the moon passes directly between earth and the sun, and it’s the last of its kind for another 19 years.
Not only that, this is an extremely rare type of solar eclipse because it takes place when the moon is at its closest distance to Earth, known as a supermoon.

A total solar eclipse coinciding with Northern Hemisphere’s Spring Equinox and Southern Hemisphere’s Autumn or Fall Equinox hasn’t happened since 1662 and will not happen again until March 20, 2034. supermoon equinox solar eclipse south africa

Total eclipses of the Sun happen when a new Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth and covers the entire disc of the Sun. In March 20, only 12 hours before the beginning of the eclipse, the Moon will be at its perigee – the point closest to the Earth on its orbit around it. This makes the Moon a Super New Moon.
