Nope, I didn't believe it either.!
But there was the headline, right on cnn.netscape's newspage..



Very oxymoronic..
But I thought I would give it a read...Maybe it's not impossible.
So I clicked on the link..and found this, the real story:



AH!!!
That explains it!..Somehow, in order to have a solar eclipse at night. You need to involve the moon of some other Planet! Yet, I still don't understand how that works..
Please, CmdrKeen, or another astronomy expert...please diagram out the proper alignments needed for this RARE occurence..I'm all eyes!!


Here is a pic of that other moon, a little bigger:

Anyone care to name that moon!?


Space out...

It must've been local. Obviously on the other side of the planet it would be a solar eclipse at daytime.

It was an article from an American media outlet.
About an eclipse across the southern half of that same America.

I thought it was humorous, in a pathetic sort of way..
Bad headline, any old mugshot of a moon, obviously a heavily researched
article!

Yep.
Solar eclipse doesn't require midday, only that observer, moon and sun are in same LOS.
Actually it could be said that there's solar eclipse continuously... shadow of moon just doesn't hit earth so often.

in the science forms...LOL

Lol, I didn't really pay much attention to bottom of your first post.

You could even say night-time is a terrestrial eclipse, with the Earth blocking the light for the people on the other side.
