A multiple-exposure image shows the many phases of a total solar eclipse as seen from Xochicalco, Mexico, on July 11, 1991. The sequence begins in the upper left. During totality (the few minutes of time when the sun is totally eclipsed), daytime skies become as dark as a moonlit night and the ambient temperature drops noticeably.
