The solar neutrino problem could arise from oscillation of one neutrino type into a second type. Neutrinos would have a mass and there could be the possibility of radiative neutrino decays. We discuss the search for neutrino decays during the 1999 solar eclipse: it involves the emitted visible photons, while neutrinos travel from the Moon to the Earth. The concept and the main characteristics of the NOTTE experiment are presented.
