Total Solar Eclipse - July 2, 2019

The Sun’s chromosphere is visible in red during the total solar eclipse on Tuesday, July 2, 2019, directly over the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory. The observatory is located in the foothills of the Andes, 7,241 feet (2,200 meters) above sea level in the Coquimbo Region of northern Chile. A total and partial solar eclipse was visible across parts of Chile and Argentina, while a partial eclipse was visible across much of South America.
