We’ll take this lull in Apollo coverage to bring you some images from the total Solar Eclipse at the start of the month.
This was a southern hemisphere event with most of the eclipse path over the open waters of the Pacific. Touching
Earth east of New Zealand, the eclipse path didn’t make continental landfall until reaching the coast of Chile. Then
it crossed over some major astronomical facilities in the Elqui Valley before entering Argentina. With the Sun setting
and close to the horizon, the shadow path crossed Argentina in just 3-minutes with the centerline just missed the
capital city of Buenos Aires.
In the Región de Coquimbo in Chile, two Tele Vue users, one from Indonesia and the other from Finland, independ-
ently setup their gear to record the event. On this week’s blog, we have the photos and sketches produced from their
expeditions. Please read and share this post through the link below.
