 For Movement of March 2016 Total Solar Eclipse Shadow (Animation), below:

The moon will pass in front of the sun, casting its shadow over much of Southeast Asia on March 8, 2016 EST (March 9 local time). People on the nearly 100-mile-wide path of totality will experience a total solar eclipse, in which all of the sun’s bright face is blocked by the moon, while people outside this path will see varying degrees of a partial eclipse.

The total solar eclipse was visible from parts of Indonesia including Sumatra, Borneo, and Sulawesi, and from locations in the Pacific Ocean. Observers in northern and eastern Australia, in South Asia, and in East Asia were able to see a partial eclipse. Take a look at the Solar Eclipse on March 9, 2016, from the Pacific Ocean, below:
