Project Chile 2024
Annular Solar Eclipse -
Observation Site

Easter Island

This eclipse can be observed from a large part of Easter Island, therefore it will be possible for us to make a late change the intended observation site location in the event of local cloud.


Our preferred location is the stone village of Orongo on the edge of a spectacular volcanic caldera. This site combines interesting possibilities for landscape photography and with the landmass of the island blocking the prevailing wind the location offers good prospects of a clear sky.
