Witnessing a total solar eclipse is an incredible experience, however to do so in the South American country of Argentina is phenomenal. This rare celestial event occurs only when a New Moon crosses the Sun as we see it, throwing a Moon-shadow onto the planet. It is a memorable, emotive and moving experience and one accentuated by being in northwest Argentina. On 14 December 2020, a total solar eclipse will paint a path through the sky over parts of Argentina and Chile. This itinerary provides a rare opportunity to combine this astronomical event with a visit to one of Argentina's most aesthetically beautiful regions.It's sure to be an intense and emotional experience, and one best shared. So, join us for the ultimate experience in travel – a Great South American adventure starring the Great South American Eclipse! Why See the Solar Eclipse?The most arresting and emotional astronomical event of them all, a Total Solar Eclipse will take place between 11:43 and 14:33 with the start of total eclipse commencing at 13:05 and ending at 13:07. If you stand under the path of that shadow, all the Sun’s rays will be blocked out for a few minutes, and you'll experience darkness in the day.However, under clear skies the few minutes of totality are about a lot more than darkness. During totality you can remove your solar safety glasses (which we will provide) to see a mind-blowing 'hole in the sky'. As you gaze at the Sun's powerful, pulsing corona visible as a wispy white ring around the edges of the Moon, you'll see huge explosions on the Sun's surface. A few minutes later, beads of sunlight pour through the valleys of the Moon as the Sun emerges, eventually causing a jaw-dropping flash of light called the 'diamond ring'.
