THESE stunning photos show the moment the sun is completely covered by the moon during an amazing solar eclipse.

The phenomenon saw the sun disappear completely – but was only really visible over Antarctica.

However, those in the southern hemisphere may have captured a partial solar eclipse.

Parts of Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and Chile could catch a glimpse of the striking change in the sky this morning.

And the pressure was great to see the breathtaking event, with the next solar eclipse expected in the USA on April 8, 2024.

Meanwhile, no eclipses are expected in Europe for the remainder of the 21st century.

Fortunately, you can follow today’s solar eclipse online even if you couldn’t make it to Antarctica.

NASA broadcast the spectacle via livestream and shows how the moon is slowly but surely covering the sun.

Nasa said: “The solar eclipse will occur before, during and after sunrise or sunset.

“This means that viewers must have a clear view of the horizon at sunrise or sunset.”

No security is required to see the solar eclipse online – just enjoy the magic through your screen.

If you are lucky enough to see the solar eclipse in person, then you should follow NASA’s advice.

“When viewing a partial eclipse, you must wear sun viewing glasses or eclipse glasses throughout the eclipse if you want to face the sun,” says NASA.

“Solar glasses or solar eclipses are NOT normal sunglasses; normal sunglasses are not safe to see the sun.

“If you are in the way of a total solar eclipse, you can only remove your sunglasses or eclipse glasses when the moon is completely obscuring the sun.”
