Watch solar eclipse on July 2nd 2019

Join Auraria Library, on July 2 at 2:00 pm Mountain Time (MT) to watch the Total Solar Eclipse Live from NSF’s Cerro Tololo Observatory in Chile, via Exploratorium. The total solar eclipse will be visible from a narrow part of the South Pacific Ocean, Chile, and Argentina.

What is Solar Eclipse? What you’ll see is the Moon covers the Sun. The Sun looks completely blackened. You’ll only see the corona of the Sun. This is called totality.

Want to learn more about Solar Eclipse? Watch a video of Exploratorium astronomer Isabel Hawkins and educator Liliana Blanco as they explain the celestial mechanics of a total solar eclipse.
