Amateur and professional astronomers from around the world will soon be congregating in parts of Brazil, Africa, and western Asia, to view a total eclipse of the sun that will take place on Wednesday, March 29. Without a question of doubt, a total eclipse of the sun is one of the most spectacular natural sights that one can witness.
