Tomorrow’s Total Solar Eclipse Will Pass Right Over an Observatory in Chile

Named the "2019 South American Total Solar Eclipse", it will be the first of its kind since August 2017 and promises to be quite the space show if you know where to look. We've rounded up the details below, including start times (all times listed are in EDT).

Rihanna fans had a field day with the rumor that the singer and actress was in La Serena to see the total solar eclipse - so much so that her alleged attendance became a trending topic on Twitter over the weekend.

However, as the moon reveals the sun, NASA said, people may be caught off guard, exposing their eyes to possible damage from the sun's UV rays. Once the shadow of the moon casts on Earth, light and temperatures drop, which results in the ground cooling faster than air, causes ocean stratus clouds to form faster and may obstruct the view.

Once the Sun is totally eclipsed, only the Sun's "crown" can be seen shining in all directions around the Moon.

If the weather wasn't enough to make matters tough, the fact that only one major road, Route 41, leads to the path of totality, a large amount of traffic could mean missing the eclipse altogether.

Where can I see it? But when the lunar shadow touches land, the eclipse will traverse parts of Chile and Argentina in a journey lasting about 6 minutes.

Apart from Chile and Argentina where total solar eclipse will be visible, some regions in the Pacific and South America, including some locations in Ecuador, Brazil, Uruguay, and Paraguay will also reportedly see a partial solar eclipse. You shouldn't be able to see anything through the proper filters or glasses, except for the sun... ideal for eclipse gazing.

If you do live in the United Kingdom, all isn't lost as you can live stream the event here. It is the second Surya Grahan of this year.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go reprogram my phone so that it stops referring to the main character as Gerald of Nvidia. Yennefer, being played in the series by Anya Chalotra, and Ciri played by Freya Allan , both look great as well.

The next total solar eclipse in the won't be until April 8, 2024 when the Moon's shadow passes over a thin sliver stretching from Texas to Maine.

The phenomenon of the total eclipse is going to take place on the up-coming Tuesday that is on 2 July.

The Exploratorium museum in San Francisco will host a livestream of the view from the National Science Foundation's Cerro Tololo Observatory in Chile, with the eclipse beginning at 12:23pm Pacific Time.

Totality will first be seen over Oeno Island, a British territory in the South Pacific Ocean, at 10:24 local time (17:24 BST).

The solar eclipse 2019 will be visible from small parts of Chile and Argentina just before sunset. During a total eclipse, the sun's crown, or corona, is visible to the naked eye.

As already mentioned, the solar eclipse will be occurring during night time (as per IST) so it will not be visible in India. And it is believed to last for around four minutes and 33 seconds.

One should also not be adventurous and look at the spectacle with sunglasses.
