Total Solar Eclipse – Southern Hemisphere Only

   Tuesday July 2nd the new Moon will be about 12 hours away from crossing the plane of the ecliptic, its ascending node. When a node crossing is close to new Moon phase, or full Moon, there will be an eclipse. On July 2nd there will be a total solar eclipse visible throughout the day along a curving path of totality starting southwest of the Pitcairn Islands in the South Pacific Ocean then crossing the Pacific coast of Chile and on to the Atlantic coast of Argentina. The eclipse ends as the Sun is setting for the residents of Buenos Aires.
