How to watch the South America Total Solar Eclipse live stream (July 2nd 2019)

NASA Livestream South America Total Solar Eclipse

NASA has partnered with the Exploratorium in San Francisco to bring live views to people across the world of a total solar eclipse, occurring Tuesday, July 2, over South America. The eclipse will only be visible directly to observers within the path of totality, which stretches across parts of Chile and Argentina, and will last up to 4 minutes and 3 seconds, depending on your location of view.

NASA will live stream three Exploratorium views via separate players on the agency’s website and embedded live stream below (all times EDT):

  • Live observations from telescopes in Vicuña, Chile, presented without audio, from 3 to 6 p.m. (from 9 pm to midnight MESZ)
  • A one-hour program with live commentary in English, from 4 to 5 p.m.
  • A one-hour program with live commentary in Spanish, from 4 to 5 p.m.

NASA Television will also carry the English-language program on its public channel. Both programs will feature updates from NASA’s Parker Solar Probe and Magnetospheric Multiscale missions.

Studying the Sun during total solar eclipses helps scientists understand the source and behaviour of solar radiation that drives space weather near Earth, which can affect the health of astronauts in space and the durability of materials used to build spacecraft. Similar data will be relevant in planning NASA’s return of astronauts to the Moon in 2024 and eventual crewed missions to Mars.
