Time-Traveling Total Solar Eclipse Will End Before It Begins

The solar eclipse will travel almost 9,000 miles and cross over the international date line. It'll finish the day before it starts.

A total solar eclipse will appear March 9. 

The eclipse will then finish March 8. (Not a typo.)

It'll cross the international date line and jump back in time. 

During the eclipse, the moon will pass between the sun and the Earth. 

Its shadow (path of totality) will stretch 90 miles wide and will travel almost 9,000 miles.

Unless you live in Southeast Asia or the Western Pacific, you'll probably miss it. 

But San Francisco's Exploratorium has you covered. It's live streaming the eclipse from Micronesia. 

The next total solar eclipse will take place in August 2017. 

This video includes clips from NASA and Universal Pictures and images from Getty Images.
