The last solar eclipse experienced in North America was on August 21, 2017. Are you ready? Because the next one is coming, and it will be visible in South America!
Tuesday, July 2, a solar eclipse will be visible from Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Ecuador, Argentina, Bolivia and in Peru! The eclipse is starting at 2:20 pm, local time in Peru.
There is a solar eclipse when the moon places itself between the sun and the earth and when it casts the shadow on the earth.
The ones who are at the right place will see a solar ring and a circumference of light when the umbra disappears. The umbra is visible when the sun is completely covered. Those who are not at the right place will see the penumbra; this is the phenomenon where you see the sun partially covered.
Unfortunately, it’s not possible to see the solar eclipse all over Peru. You can only experience the solar eclipse in the departments of Puno, Tacna and Moquegua because it will take place in the Pacific Ocean.
Be careful and never look at the sun directly without any cover. You must wear sunglasses to protect your eyes!
Don’t worry if you miss this eclipse. According to Diario Correo the next eclipse will take place on December 14, 2020 in South America.
