Url: http://www.teachersdomain.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.eiu.eclipse1991/
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: In July 1991, the alignment of the Sun, Moon, and Earth produced a total solar eclipse with a particularly long duration and a path that crossed easily accessible locations, including a major astronomical observatory in Hawaii. This video segment explains the mechanics of solar eclipses and shows the rare 1991 eclipse from the top of Mauna Kea. The segment is five minutes seven seconds in length. A background essay and discussion questions are included.
