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.
