ESOcast 170: The 2 July 2019 Total Solar Eclipse Over La Silla
4 July 2018
On 2 July 2019, a very exciting event will take place — a total solar eclipse will pass over ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile! These unusual phenomena have a profound impact on those fortunate enough to experience them. This will be the only total solar eclipse visible from an ESO observatory for the next 212 years, with the next one — visible again from La Silla — due to occur on 28 August 2231.
ESOcast 170 describes what happens during a solar eclipse, and what a viewer could expect to experience. It also provides details on how to obtain a ticket for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at La Silla.
