Solar Eclipse 2019: Know the date and timings

For a solar eclipse to take place, the Sun, the Moon, and Earth must be aligned in a ideal or near flawless straight line-an alignment astronomers call syzygy. This will mark the beginning of the partial phase of the eclipse. And tomorrow, it will enjoy 2 minutes and 6 seconds of totality as the Moon sweeps between the Earth and Sun. This is almost twice as long as 2017's solar eclipse.

An eclipse of the Sun occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. And with an eclipsed Sun close to the horizon, it will be possible to line up epic shots of ground features with the eclipse. It's a view that lasts only a few minutes before sunlight begins to stream through the valleys of the moon on its opposite side, causing another diamond ring that heralds the end of the spectacle.

Tuesday, July 2, will bring a special kind of darkness to South America. The total amount of time for its totality was two minutes and 40 seconds. Users can download the same to watch the live stream of the total solar eclipse.

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

Weather and traffic conditions aside, the terrain is another matter. It's winter season in the Southern Hemisphere, and there may be an overcast with high cloud coverage. "The eclipse will give researchers a chance to examine the charging and uncharging process in nearly real time", says M. Serra-Ricart. The eclipse is expected to happen at 4:38 PM (EST).

The eclipse also could boost cloud cover near the coast.

Solar eclipses are a attractive sight to behold.

Totality represents a unique opportunity for scientists who study the sun.

During totality, it is safe to view a solar eclipse. Annular eclipses are when the moon partially blocks the sun.

What is a solar eclipse? The corona or the sun's atmosphere is where solar weather and solar winds are prominent.

Scroll on down to watch the eclipse in the embedded NASA video player. It is the first mission to the sun. The upcoming eclipse will be the sole total solar eclipse to take place this year. July Solar Eclipse is not likely to be visible in India. A major misconception is that you can use sunglasses to look at the sun during an eclipse, however, that is not true. But if you're not in South America that day, what's the big deal?

One group, led by Jay Pasaschoff (Williams College) will continue an experiment that stretches back more than 20 years.

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. Chile and Argentina! That's a celestial stroke of luck, although it will be southern Chile and Argentinean Patagonia that experience totality on December 14, 2020. It will, again, be visible from Chile and Argentina.
