March 9 – A Total Solar Eclipse that Ends the Day Before It Begins?

Posted on March 9, 2016

Total solar eclipses are rare. I've never seen one, and I'm pretty darned old!!!

But can a total solar eclipse reverse causality and promote time travel? How can an eclipse end the day before it begins?

I bet you know without having to read the explanation...right?

If you aren't sure, scroll through some of these cool eclipse photos and diagrams to learn (or brush up on) what causes a total solar eclipse...

Okay, here's how a total solar eclipse started on March 9 and ended on March 8:

At the beginning of the eclipse, the moon's shadow fell over a small portion of the Pacific Ocean on Wednesday morning, March 9, local time. The Earth's rotation caused the shadow to cross the international date line – and then the eclipse was visible on Tuesday afternoon, March 8, local time!
