The Sky Tonight Update: Total Solar Eclipse

A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon completely blocks the Sun, revealing the Sun’s beautiful outer atmosphere known as the corona. The path of totality will only be visible in parts of southern Chile and southern Argentina.

The path is similar to the solar eclipse of February 26, 2017. It takes place just 17 months after the solar eclipse of July 2, 2019. It is also a partial solar eclipse in Brazil and Uruguay.
