You shouldn't be able to see anything through the proper filters or glasses, except for the sun... flawless for eclipse gazing.

The total solar eclipse as seen from Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 21, 2017.

Outside of this narrow path, in places like Paraguay and Uruguay, stargazers will only get to see some partial eclipsing. But when the lunar shadow touches land, the eclipse will traverse parts of Chile and Argentina in a journey lasting about 6 minutes.

Unlike the 2017 solar eclipse, astronomers (and eclipse chasers) are expecting difficulties with viewing the eclipse.

ESO or European Southern Observatory will share a raw feed of the total solar eclipse from the Atacama Desert in Chile. Solar eclipse happens when the New Moon moves between the Sun and Earth, blocking out the Sun's rays and casting a shadow on parts of Earth.The Moon's shadow is not big enough to engulf the entire planet, so the shadow is always limited to a certain area.

If you do live in the United Kingdom, all isn't lost as you can live stream the event here. It is likely that even clouds, not directly above Chile, Argentina, and the Pacific Ocean islands, can block the view. But beyond its fantastic view, scientists grab the opportunity to study the sun and space. The upcoming July eclipse will be the first total solar eclipse since that event.

The corona is the Sun's atmosphere, and the only time us earth-dwellers can bask in its glory is during a solar eclipse. On November 11, Mercury Transit will be observed from North and South America.

(Web Desk) - It's been almost two years since the "Great American Eclipse".

Robert Downey Jr., who stars in the "Iron Man" movies, and "Captain America" actor Chris Evans are also rumored to be in the area for the eclipse, but their presence here has not yet been confirmed. This year's Mercury Transit will be the last one until 2032.

The so-called eclipse fever was a national phenomenon in 2017 as millions of Americans enjoyed one of the rarest and most spectacular celestial events that can be seen with the naked eye. Since totality strikes at 4:38 p.m. - just one hour, 18 minutes before sunset - the solar disk will hover a mere 13 degrees above the northwest horizon as the moon intercepts its light.

The next total solar eclipse in the won't be until April 8, 2024 when the Moon's shadow passes over a thin sliver stretching from Texas to Maine. The next - on 14 December 2020 - will pass over Chile's highly scenic lakes region before swooping east into Argentina.
