An eclipse of the sun, total over a portion of the New England
states and partial throughout the rest of the country will occur
on the afternoon of August 31. The earth is the only planet in our
solar system with a moon large enough to make a total eclipse of
the sun possible. Mercury and Venus have no moons. Mars has two
that are only 5 to 10 miles in diameter. The remaining planets have
several moons, but none are large enough to cause anything except
a partial eclipse. A total eclipse of the sun, visible from the
southern border of the United States from Florida to California,
will occur August 12, 2045 ะส113 years hence.
