Just the right fit

Just the right fit

The title “just the right fit” refers to how closely matched the apparent size of the Moon and Sun are. So much so that solar flares and prominences are visible near the sun's surface during the total eclipse when seen from just the right location, at just the right time on the earth's surface. A truly remarkable astronomical coincidence.
