Video: Solar Eclipse 101 by National Geographic

As excitement builds for next week’s total solar eclipse here in North America, we’re likely to see a number of articles and videos explaining what to expect and why it is happening. This is clip, which comes our way from National Geographic, is one of the best I’ve seen so far, breaking down why an eclipse occurs and what it will be like while it is happening. In a few days we’ll all get to experience it for ourselves, but until then, this video will have to do.
