The hybrid solar eclipse is a rare event that occurs when the Moon passes directly in front of the Sun, but is not large enough to completely block out the Sun's light.
The eclipse will be visible from several countries in the southern hemisphere, including Australia, New Zealand, and Chile.
The path of the eclipse will begin in the Indian Ocean and move southeast over the southern Pacific Ocean.
The eclipse will only last for a few minutes, and viewers will need special eye protection to safely view the event.
In case you are unable to watch the total solar eclipse from Australia, NASA is offering a live-stream at 10:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, which will enable viewers to witness the phenomenon.
According to NASA, the last hybrid solar eclipse occurred on November 3, 2013, and the next one is predicted to happen in 2031.
