On Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021, some people in the Southern Hemisphere, Falklands, South Georgia Islands, will have the chance to experience a total or partial eclipse of the Sun, according to US space agency NASA.
Thousands of people turned their heads to the sky to watch a solar eclipse that lasted around two minutes on Monday as southern Chile and Argentina were plunged into darkness. Heavy rain had threatened to prevent star gazers in Chile from seeing the eclipse but at the last moment, the clouds parted just enough for the phenomenon to be partially visible.
NASA will provide live coverage this Monday, Dec. 14, of a solar eclipse that will pass over South America, treating parts of Chile, Argentina and Uruguay to views of a total eclipse of the Sun. A Spanish-language program will air on NASA Television and the public channel on the agency’s website. A separate livestream of the eclipse without narration will air on the media channel.
Millions of sky gazers were left in awe on Tuesday as the moon blocked out the sun over Chile and Argentina -- a celestial event that drew worldwide attention. The eclipse was only visible across the southern Pacific Ocean and South America, but people from around the world tuned in to watch it on NASA TV.
Day will turn into night on Tuesday afternoon as the sun, moon and Earth align perfectly during the first total solar eclipse since 2017. The eclipse will only be visible across the southern Pacific Ocean and South America, but can be seen anywhere from around the world online through NASA TV.
On Friday, 25 November 2011, a solar eclipse will sweep across the southern part of the world, with the Moon covering about 80% of the Sun at the South Pole, reports the International Astronomical Union, IAU.
