South Pacific, Parts Of South America Set To Witness Total Solar Eclipse

But worry not, here are some ways in which you can catch it live regardless.

The Exploratorium museum in San Francisco is partnering with NASA to live stream the eclipse.

In case you're wondering whether India would also be able to view or witness the Total Solar Eclipse, the answer is no.

Today's total solar eclipse is the first anywhere on Earth since the Great American Eclipse of August 2017.

Total solar eclipses occur at any specific location on average every 360 years, according to the European Southern Observatory (ESO).

This new moon is especially vital because it's the midpoint of a two-year series of eclipses on the Cancer/Capricorn axis touching down between July 2018 and July 2020.

NVIDIA officially announces the GeForce RTX 2060/2070/2080 SUPER GPUs, first gaming benchmarks
The RTX 2070 Super is up to 24 percent faster than the RTX 2070 for the same price, and it's also faster than the GTX 1080 Ti. The RTX 2070 Super , meanwhile, features a TU104 GPU with 2560 CUDA cores , and has the same 8GB of GDDR6 memory.


Though the July 2 solar eclipse will move through a path of about 6,000 miles, only a narrow region in the Pacific Ocean and South America will fall in the route of totality, says a report released on the total solar eclipse by the Weather Channel.

It's really just the northern coast of South America that misses out. "It is an important moment for us, to be able to measure the layers of the ionosphere, the upper layers of the atmosphere, how it changes with the shadow of the sun during the eclipse". A total or complete solar eclipse happens when the Moon blocks the light off the Sun completely. They make for spectacular visual spectacle and the Associated Press called the 2017 total solar eclipse as the "most-observed and most-photographed eclipse in history".

Thousands of tourists from all over the world are flocking to Chile and Argentina, where the eclipse is expected to pass by in the afternoon.

This means all of the rest of Chile and Argentina, as well as Peru, Ecuador, Paraguay, Bolivia, Uruguay, and parts of Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela and Panama. The next three total solar eclipses all take place in the southern hemisphere on December 14, 2020, December 21, 2021 and April 20, 2023.

As always, people are urged to take great care during an eclipse.

But in the coming days there will be another rare astronomical phenomenon - a partial Eclipse of the moon, visible in the center and South of Russian Federation, reports the Moscow planetarium.
