Thousands of people from around the world rushed to Turkey to watch the total solar eclipse which was best viewed from southern Turkey, on March 29, 2006. Thousands of people, including NASA astronomers, gathered in the 2,000 year old well preserved Roman theater in the seacoast resort of Side, in Southern Turkey, to watch how the shadow of the moon masked the sun. Special eye glasses were given to those thousands of anxious sungazers.
Some 10,000 skygazers witnessed how Venus suddenly appeared when the sun was totally masked by the moon.
