In accordance to International Astronomical Center, there will be a solar eclipse in parts of the world today.
The eclipse will be visible today (Tuesday, July 02) directly to observers across the Pacific Ocean, Chile and Argentina, generally visible at sunset, according to Science News of Middle East Press.
International astronomical centers have said that uninhabited atoll will be started at 16:55 GMT. Then it reaches across to the parts of the landscape and the first phase will end at 18:01 GMT.
The eclipse is expected to last for four minutes and 33 seconds and is the only total solar eclipse to take place in 2019. Areas in the path of the eclipse will be plunged temporarily into darkness as the Moon blocks the Sun’s rays.
It should be noted that the longest solar eclipse of the 21st century, occurred 10 years ago on January 31, 2009 that lasted six minutes and 39 seconds.
A solar eclipse takes place when the Sun, Moon and Earth are all in a straight line, such that the Moon blocks the Sun’s rays from reaching the Earth.
