    The total solar eclipse is likely to last longer than two minutes and 40 seconds. The solar eclipse occurred during August 2017. The solar eclipse will be going through a 6,000-mile line, which is only a narrow zone of the Pacific Ocean. Furthermore, South America also comes in the path of totality, according to a report by Local Weather Channels.

    According to the report, the eclipse will cast a dark shadow over parts of Chile and Argentina and some remote areas of South Pacific. A partial eclipse will be visible in the neighbouring countries of South America.

    Most of the eclipse will be happening over the Pacific, with the partial eclipse starting at 12:55 pm EDT which is 10:25 pm Indian Standard Time.
    This solar eclipse will be occurring at a time when it is dark here in India. Hence, the eclipse will not be visible.

    A total solar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth are all in a straight line in such a way that the Moon blocks the Sun’s rays from reaching the Earth. The maximum coverage of the shadow, during the eclipse, will occur in the South Pacific.

    The predominance of this eclipse’s path will be seen over the South Pacific Ocean, starting at sunrise local time about 4,000 km east-northeast of Wellington, New Zealand, according to Space.com’s report.

    The eclipse’s umbra will be touching the earth for 161 minutes. But only during its final four minutes, it will make landfall reaching central Chile at 04:39 pm local time. From here, the shadow will go towards the east-southeast parts of the continent through central Argentina.

    The path of the eclipse will eventually come to an end just before reaching the Río de la Plata and Uruguay. Further, it will lift off the earth at sunset and return back to space. In case if you miss out on this solar eclipse, don’t worry, the next totality is likely to happen somewhere in December 2020.
