Total Eclipse of the Sun

On July 2, 2019, we could observe a total solar eclipse in our region in Chile. I was extremely lucky, as I could watch (and photograph) the eclipse from my bedroom window. Totality was a moment of rare beauty, intriguing and emotional. But after 2 minutes and 25 seconds the diamond ring effect announced the end of totality and the unique cosmic show was over. But don’t despair. The next total solar eclipse is coming soon. It is happening in southern Chile and Argentina on December 14, 2020.
