After the Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017, a new total Solar Eclipse is once again going to grace the sky on July 2, 2019.
The eclipse is expected to last for four minutes and 33 seconds.
This celestial event will be the only total solar eclipse to occur this year.
A Total Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon, the Sun and the Earth fall in linea and the Moon completely blocks the Sun, turning the bright day as dark as night.
NASA has confirmed that the solar eclipse of July 2 will start off from the coast of New Zealand and reach the parts of South Pacific, Chile and Argentina in its totality.
Its visibility will depend on the place where you are at and the time you are watching.
If you miss this years’ Total Solar Eclipse, then you will have to wait until December 14, 2020.
While the Total Solar Eclipse will first reach Oeno Island — a Coral Atoll in the South Pacific Ocean — at 11:54 pm India time and 10:24 am local time.
It will then cross the coast of Chile and the Andes Mountains.
Unfortunately, the Total Solar Eclipse of July 2, 2019, will not be visible in India since it will be night in the country at the time the event will take place.
However, you watch the live stream of the eclipse online!
People in San Juan in Argentina are expected to witness the Total Solar Eclipse for 36 seconds while in La Silla in Chile the visibility will last for one minute and 53 seconds.
