Amazing astronomical alignments that will capture millions on Tuesday

All eyes will be in the sky on Tuesday afternoon, while the sun, moon and earth agree in the unbelievable phenomenon known as the complete solar eclipse. But before the Moon throws the shadow on Earth, people will be focused on the weather.

The full solar eclipse will appear on Tuesday, July 2, 2019, and will be seen only in the southern part of the country, including the greater part of the South Pacific Ocean and South America.

This is the first complete solar eclipse anywhere in the world of the "Great American Darkness" that stunned millions across the United States on August 21, 2017.

Most of South America will be able to see partial sunshine during the afternoon and evening hours, but the requirement for eye protection is mandatory.

"You can not even look at the sun with your naked eye, so you want to look at partial phases by putting sunglasses that block about 99 percent of the sun's light," said Gordon Telepun for AccuWeather. The telepun is a sophisticated euphemic photographer and a teacher of ecstasy who traveled the world to witness the eclipse. It will be in Argentina on Tuesday due to this eclipse.

"If you look at the sun through an enlarged device such as a binoculars or a telescope or even a camera, you can burn the back of the retina because these enhancement devices increase the bright sun," said Telepun.

The only area that will be able to see the total solar eclipse will be a small area of ​​Chile and Argentina.

This area, known as the path of totality, will be stretched from La Serena, Chile, to the south, but not including Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The areas in the middle of this path can be expected about 2 minutes and 30 seconds in the sun shade. Meanwhile, people near the edge of the road will experience totality for about a minute.

However, the heavenly spectacle can be missed in areas where the clouds sheltered the sky.

Fortunately, many areas on the path to totality in South America predict good conditions for viewing on Tuesday afternoon, but some clouds are possible.

The clouds could spoil the partial brilliance of those in Paraguay, southern Brazil, northern and southern Argentina and southern Chile.

Although the eclipse will not be visible in cloudy places, it will still be noticeably illuminated.

People throughout South America who miss the full sunset on Tuesday will not have to wait long until others see the continent.

In just 17 months, the moon will completely block the sun across Chile and Argentina. The earthquake will take place on December 14, 2020, and the road will be only a few hundred miles south of Tuesday's fogging.

"For United States observers who have experienced their first complete solar eclipse in 2017 and have the desire to see another and can not wait until 2024, the trip to the south is a reasonably international trip [this eclipse]Said Telepun.

People across North America who do not want to travel overseas to see the eclipse will have to be patient because the next eclipse will not take place for a few more years.

On October 14, 2023, the solar eclipse will be visible in the western part of the United States as well as in Central America and North America. In this type of eclipse, the moon is far from Earth, which means it is not big enough to cover the sun.

However, the main event will be six months later.

On April 8, 2024, the solar eclipse will be visible in the eastern parts of the United States, as well as in the parts of northern Mexico and eastern Canada.

This eclipse may be more impressive and see more people than 2017, because it will last longer and will be visible in several major cities, including Dallas, Indianapolis and Cleveland.

The full solar eclipse of 2024 could cause astronomy for the whole new generation of hunters.

"There is no other situation on earth except the solar eclipse, where there is physical blockage of the entire electromagnetic spectrum of the sun," said Telepun. "The complete solar eclipses are the result of the beautiful and constant clock mechanism of the Solar System."
