Do Not Miss Out on the 2019 Solar Eclipse!

The Solar Eclipses of 2019 is almost here! There will be three eclipses during the 2019 solar eclipse season.

On January 5th and 6th, a partial eclipse can be viewed from the northern Pacific, northeast Asia, and parts of Alaska.

On July 2nd, 2019, a Total Solar Eclipse can be viewed from the southern areas of North America and much of South America such as San Juan, the Cook Islands, Tahiti, Falkland Islands, Galapagos Islands, Brazil, Ecuador, Chile, Peru, Uruguay, Argentina, and Bolivia. The path of totality will cross over Chile and Argentina. Both Chile and Argentina are planning eclipse events and viewing areas as well as educational workshops on eclipse day. The path of totality will be approximately 200 km wide with a maximum duration of 4 minutes and 32 seconds.

The last eclipse, which is an Annular Solar Eclipse, will take place on December 26, 2019, and can be seen from Arabia, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, and Guam.

There is a difference between the Partial, Total, and Annular Solar Eclipses. With all Solar Eclipses, the Moon will pass between the Sun and Earth. What makes them either a Partial, Annular, or Total Eclipse is the position of the Moon.

A partial solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the Sun and Earth blocking out portions of the sun.

In an Annular Solar Eclipse, the Moon is further away from the Earth making it look smaller to the Earthlings, so it does not fully cover the sun.

During a Total Solar Eclipse, the Moon is closer to Earth making it look bigger so it will fully cover the disk of the sun.

Watching an eclipse, even a partial one, is amazing. Many eclipse chasers love the idea of standing in the Moon’s shadow as it speeds across the Earth’s surface. So, find your viewing spot and get out there and watch the 2019 solar eclipses.
