Google doodle celebrates Solar Eclipse 2017
Google created an interesting doodle to make the Solar Eclipse 2017. Google's doodle featured two aliens playing catch with the moon as it occasionally covered the sun.
The doodle was created to celebrate the Great American Eclipse on August 21.
Clicking on the doodle takes you to a page full of information on how an eclipse happens along with a bunch of trivia.
According to Google, a total eclipse (when you can just see the sun's ring) occurs only "once every 18 months. To see one requires you to be in just the right place on earth, and a total eclipse in the same location only happens every 375 years on average".
An eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, causing the satellite to cover the sun, briefly blocking the sunlight. Only if you're standing right in the centre of the moon's shadow on Earth, then you will get to experience totality, which is some moments of total darkness during the day.
