Before delving into details regarding the best places to see the April 8 eclipse, it’s worth recalling a few things.

A solar eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun.

When this happens the moon partially or totally blocks sunlight in certain parts of the globe.

This phenomenon can only be seen during the day when it creates a brief period of total darkness.

Some of the best places to view the eclipse are in Mexico and Canada
