When does this occur?

A total solar eclipse in any part of the world occurs when the Moon passes directly between the Sun and the Earth, completely blocking the sunlight from reaching the Earth.

The alignment of the Sun, Moon and Earth is very important for a total solar eclipse.

Although the Sun is about 400 times larger in diameter than the Moon, it is only about 400 times farther from the Earth than the Moon, and therefore both appear about the same size when viewed from Earth.
