Capturing the 2 July total solar eclipse
Eclipse chaser Daniel Lynch made the trek to Chile to catch the 2 July 2019 total solar eclipse. He describes the moment he caught totality.
It's been a spectacular day by any measure. Clear skies greeted early risers and eclipse chasers in La Serena, Chile. No one likes to count their chickens early, especially 11 hours before totality, but it was obvious that clouds would play no part in this eclipse over Chile.
Shadow bands, atmospheric disturbances that look like ripples of light on the bottom of a swimming pool, were visible on a white sheet that the group had placed on the ground.
