The only total solar eclipse of 2020 has come and gone, but it will not be forgotten. The remarkable celestial event occurred on Monday when the moon stepped in front of the sun, blocking the fiery disk and creating temporary darkness along its path of totality. You can watch the video recordings below.

The solar eclipse followed in the south of South America, where people in certain regions of Chile and Argentina were able to view the entire solar eclipse in person. Well-placed boats or ships in parts of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans also had a chance to see the total solar eclipse.

People within a band outside of the narrow path of totality were able to catch a partial solar eclipse that looked 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 live streams, but NASA and other sources offered live broadcasts. You can revisit the views and fast forward to the total eclipse portions if you are so inclined.

The Virtual Telescope Project put on a show full of eclipse discussions and views.

Time and Date also provided a live stream of Chile’s Villarrica volcano. You can watch the festivities again.

To pump yourself up for future events, be sure to check back to 2020’s rare “ring of fire” eclipse from June. That and the total solar eclipse were some of the biggest solar events of the year.
