Total Solar Eclipse will be visible again on August 2, 2027 from a broad path moving across the Atlantic Ocean, Southern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

When the Moon drifts in front of the Sun when it’s slightly larger in its apparent size, a Total Solar Eclipse takes place. This happens so that the Moon completely covers the Sun’s circle, according to Space.

The path of totality will cross Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Somalia and the Chagos Islands. Moreover, it will measure a maximum of 160 miles (258 kilometres).

The August 2027 Solar Eclipse has been deemed as "eclipse of the century" and is set to bring the longest totality since 2009 and the longest totality on land since 1991.

Additionally, it also will be the longest remaining totality of the 21st century, peaking at 6 minutes and 23 seconds. When there will be 6 minutes, 6 seconds of totality close to Florida, the next-longest totality will occur on Aug 12, 2045.
