Eclipse 2

In southern Japan there is a complete eclipse tomorrow, which will last for 6 minutes (a really long eclipse).

When the moon blocks the sunlight from reaching us then we get a giant shadow, known as an eclipse, for several minutes. Then the famous diamond ring appears signaling the end of the eclipse. This is what happens.
