Um eclipse solar total vai espantar a América do Sul

July 2, 2019 - O único eclipse solar total de 2019 mergulhará partes do Chile e Argentina na escuridão. Fora da faixa de totalidade com 150km de largura, os observadores verão um eclipse parcial.

Winter cloudiness looms as the only potential spoiler. Eclipse watchers in Argentina will need more luck than their Chilean counterparts. The phenomenon occurs close to the horizon, often a cloud-filled line in Argentine winters. In Chile the eclipse will be higher in the sky and less likely to be obscured by cloud.

La Silla lies 465 miles north of Santiago in the Elqui Valley, which is widely described as a stargazer’s dream destination. It is home to several major telescopes as well as the European observatory. At its inauguration in Mar 1969, La Silla became the largest astronomical observatory of its time, leading Europe to the frontline of astronomical research. It offers prime viewing for eclipse fans.

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.
