(Meredith) -- You’ll be able to see a total solar eclipse in Chile and Argentina this December. To experience totality, you need to stand within the path of totality – the moon’s central shadow – which is about 56 miles wide.
On December 14th of this year, the path of totality will stretch across the Chilean Lake District and Argentina’s northern Patagonia region. It will take 24 minutes for totality to cross Chile and Argentina, beginning at 1:00 pm local time.
On December 4th, 2021, there will be a total solar eclipse in Antarctica. There will be no total solar eclipses in 2022 and 2023.
December’s eclipse might be the best time to see a total eclipse, unless you’re prepared to wait for the “Greatest American Eclipse” in 2024.
