VISIBLE ONLY FROM SOUTH AMERICA:
On Tuesday, September 11th the second partial solar eclipse will be visible from points in southern South America and in Antarctica. The maximum extent of the eclipse, about 75%, will only be visible on the high seas in the Drake Passage. Still, residents of Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Chile will be able to view varying amounts of the event. The eclipse will begin at 10:25:46 UT and end at 14:36:33 UT. If you are resident in South America see the Time and Date website to convert these times to your local time.
There will be no totality during this eclipse because the Moon's umbra will pass into space about 802 kilometers below the South Pole.
