The total solar eclipse of 20 March 2015 is a sight of a lifetime. The last total solar eclipse was in 1999. Sixteen years later, thousands of eclipse chasers will travel around the world to the only two place where totality can be seen from land – the Faroe Islands north of Scotland and the arctic archipelago of Svalbard. Hundreds more will view the total solar eclipse from airplanes and ships. The closer you are to the path of the total solar eclipse, the deeper the eclipse.

You can see the path of the total solar eclipse illustrated in the total solar eclipse infographic below. It also depicts the percentage of total eclipse of several major world cities such as Madrid, Paris, London, Warsaw and Istanbul. Do remember not to look directly at the sun. Be certain to use certified eclipse viewing glasses or a pinhole projection.
