Eclipse of the Century

In July 1991, the alignment of the Sun, Moon, and Earth produced a rare opportunity—a total solar eclipse with a particularly long duration and a path that crossed easily accessible locations, including a major astronomical observatory in Hawaiʻi. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, learn about the mechanics of solar eclipses and observe the rare 1991 eclipse from the top of Mauna Kea.
