Today (Monday, December 14, 2020), South America will be treated to an eclipse of the Sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse.
This path, where the Moon will completely cover the Sun and the Sun’s tenuous atmosphere – the corona – can be seen, will stretch from Saavedra, Chile to Salina del Eje, Argentina. Observers in Southern Chile and Argentina outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the Moon covers part of the Sun’s disk.
The path of totality has an average width of 56 miles (90 km) and anyone at the centerline of the totality path will have about 2 minutes, 10 seconds of totality not accounting for weather.
