The only total solar eclipse of 2020 will arrive in a few days. The remarkable celestial event on Monday, December 14, will occur when the moon steps in front of the sun, blocking the fiery disk and creating temporary darkness along its path of totality.

The eclipse will follow over the southern end of South America, with people in certain regions of Chile and Argentina able to personally witness the full solar eclipse in clear weather. Well-placed boats or ships in parts of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans can also have a chance to see the total solar eclipse.

People in a band outside of the narrow path of totality should be able to catch a partial solar eclipse that looks like a bite from the sun. View the map from NASA to see the boundaries of the viewing zone.

The pandemic of the coronavirus threatened to put a damper on eclipse livestreams, but NASA will offer a Spanish-language program on NASA TV. The views come from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile through telescopes on the Observatorio Docente. The one-hour Spanish show starts at 7:30 a.m. PT with the total solar eclipse for 8:02 a.m.

Time and Date also offers a live stream, from Chile’s Villarrica Volcano from 6:30 a.m.PT.

If you are one of the lucky few to see the solar eclipse on the ground, heed the usual warnings. Never look directly into the sun. Use proper glasses for eclipse, or make a pinhole projector.

To get yourself pumped for this event, you have to look back on 2020’s rare “ring of fire” eclipse from June.
