Only a few people got to see this spectacle live!

A solar eclipse darkened the sky over South America. The sky spectacle began on Monday noon (local time) over the city of Saavedra on the Chilean Pacific coast. The moon’s shadow then moved in a south-easterly direction via Pucón in Chile to Junín de los Andes in Argentina and on via Valcheta to Salina del Eje on the Argentine Atlantic coast.

Good conditions in Argentina

In Chile it was mostly overcast and it was raining. On the Argentine side of the Andes, on the other hand, the solar eclipse could be easily observed in different places. In the Argentine capital Buenos Aires, only a partial solar eclipse could be seen – about 75 percent of the sun was covered by the moon.

▶ ︎ It was the second total solar eclipse in the region in about a year and a half. The phenomenon was last seen in Chile and Argentina at the beginning of July 2019, but a little further north. During a solar eclipse, the moon moves between the earth and the sun and thus covers the sun.
