Web Extra: Sky Guide 2019

RELATED TOPICS: OBSERVING
SkyGuide2019
After a down year for solar eclipses in 2018, the pace will pick up nicely in 2019. The Moon will pass directly between the Sun and Earth twice this year. The top event will arrive July 2, when the Moon will completely cover our star’s disk along a narrow track that runs across the Pacific Ocean before making landfall in Chile and then moving into Argentina.

Those seeking a land-based adventure likely will head to Chile. The path of totality will reach the coast in the beautiful port city of La Serena, where totality will last 2 minutes, 15 seconds. (The center line north of there will provide an additional 21 seconds of totality.) But the prospects for good weather improve as you head inland. If you prefer a big-city environment, the track will end at sunset in the suburbs south of Buenos Aires, where viewers can see up to 2 minutes of totality.
