TRAVEL TO CHILE IN 2019
On 2 July 2019, a small strip of northern Chile will witness a rare and incredible phenomenon: a total solar eclipse. At about 4 o’clock in the afternoon, the moon will pass between the sun and earth, sliding across the sun’s surface to plunge the area into a twilight darkness for 2 minutes and 34 seconds in a spectacular display. We’ll be watching the action, accompanied by astronomer and eclipse expert Dr Stuart Clark, from Chile’s dramatic Elqui Valley, an area that is not only a famous wine region (you can watch with a glass of wine in hand!) but also one of the world’s premier spots for star-gazing and hosts many international observatories. What better place to observe this spectacular sight!
