November 25th, 2011, brings the fourth and final solar eclipse for the year - a partial solar eclipse. Look to the skies if you happen to be in southern South Africa, Antarctica, Tasmania, or parts of New Zealand.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun. During a total solar eclipse, the moon blocks the entire sun from view; during a partial solar eclipse, the moon obscures only a portion of the sun.
