The 2020 total solar eclipse begins when the shadow of the Moon touches the Earth on the morning of the 14th December 2020 in a remote part of the Pacific Ocean, 6,000 km north of New Zealand. If you were at that point you would see the rising Sun would be eclipsed by the Moon for a brief 25 seconds as it rose above the horizon.

 

The shadow of the Moon then moves across the Pacific for over 7,000 km, finally reaching land near Puerto Saavedra in the Patagonia Region of Chile. It continues across Chile and the Andes Mountain Range, then down into the arid Argentine Pampas, finally leaving the Argentine coast over the Gulf of San Matias.

 

Astro Trails Project Patagonia will observe this eclipse from the middle section of the eclipse track, based on the best weather prospects.
