A total eclipse of the Sun is undoubtedly one of nature’s greatest spectacles.
When the dark disk of the new moon completely covers the sun, an eerie darkness descends and the sky is a deep azure blue with tinges of pink and orange along the horizon. In Britain, such total solar eclipses are rare, occurring on average every 70 years or so. Astrophysicist Dr John Mason has been chasing these breathtaking events for most of his life, a passion that has taken him to all corners of the globe.
Join John for a wondrous cosmic journey chasing the moon’s shadow - from the frozen wastes of the Arctic to the deserts of Africa and Asia, from the tiny islands of the Pacific Ocean to the mountainous Andes, and from the temples of India to the beaches of Australia.
