A total solar eclipse occurred on June 19, 1936. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across the surface of the Earth, while a partial solar eclipse will be visible over a region thousands of kilometres wide.

The path of totality crossed Europe and Asia. The full phase can be seen in Greece, Turkey, USSR, China and Japan. The maximum eclipse was near Bratsk and lasts about 2.5 minutes.
