A full total eclipse will occur in just over a week’s time, on March 8 and March 9. A full solar eclipse occurs when the moon moves between the earth and the sun and almost completely blocks the light of the sun. This is different from the more rare Supermoon lunar eclipse that occurred in September when the moon passed through part of earth’s shadow.

The Epoch Times said the eclipse will be partially viewable to folks living in Australia, East Asia and Southeast Asia and will begin at 23:19 UTC on March 8. Folks living in the aforementioned regions of the world can expect the highlight of the show, which will only last about 4 minutes, at about 1:59 UTC on March 9, The Epoch Times explained. The full experience will only be available for residents of Indonesia, however.

If you live in one of those areas, be sure to look up at the sky on March 8 and March 9. It should be an exciting show, as usual.
