The eclipse will reportedly begin 4,000 km east-northeast of Wellington, New Zealand before eventually making landfall in Chile and crossing through into Argentina. Meanwhile, a total solar eclipse occurs when the disk of the moon appears to completely cover the disk of the sun in the sky.

Thousands of visitors also trekked to neighboring areas of Argentina where the eclipse also will be total.

A look at the path of totality via Time and Date's website.

It will be the first total solar eclipse since August 2017, when the moon passed between the earth and the sun over parts of the United States. Five teams were chosen to perform experiments inside this two-minute window. This year's Mercury Transit will be the last one until 2032. Pasachoff's team will be gathering measurements of the corona's shape, temperature, and color. "They told me that nothing compares to a solar eclipse, so that's why we're here".

People who have high blood pressure directly during an Eclipse can be a bad - keep with you the necessary medications just in case because the Sun affects the heart and blood vessels. Reservations are full for in-person observatory viewing. Meanwhile, astronomers in Buenos Aires province planned to offer yoga and meditation classes during the eclipse, which will also be partially visible in other South American countries. We know roughly how this happens, but not precisely.

You can also catch all the eclipse goodness through the museum's Total Solar Eclipse 2019 app for iOS and Android. Make some time to see it, or travel to a spot in totality if you're close enough.

If you want to take a picture of the solar eclipse, you will need a DSLR camera to get it right.

The museum based in San Francisco will stream the solar eclipse 2019 live all the way from the National Science Foundation's Cerro Tololo Observatory in Chile. The totality occurs one hour and 18 minutes before sunset, which means the sun's angle is only 13 degrees above the northwest horizon.

NASA said that totality is expected to begin around 4:38pm local time (20:38 GMT) in La Serena, Chile, and end there around 4:40pm (20:20 GMT).

The Taliban claimed the attack, which came as the insurgents were holding their latest round of talks with USA envoy Zalmay Khalilzad in the Gulf state of Qatar, where they have a political office.

"Studying the Sun during total solar eclipses helps scientists understand the source and behaviour of solar radiation that drives space weather near Earth, which can affect the health of astronauts in space and the durability of materials used to build spacecraft", NASA said.
