Tonight from December 3 to 4 there will be a total solar eclipse that will be seen in full from Antarctica where teams of scientists will carry out important studies on the crown of the star king.
The solar eclipse will occur when the Moon crosses between the Earth and the Sun, causing shadowing in the Antarctic region. The National Astronomical Observatory points out that the eclipse will be visible in some places far to the south of the Atlantic Ocean from 5:29 a.m. (Universal Time or UTC) and will last until 9:37 a.m., although at that time it will only be possible appreciate southern Tasmania (Australia).
The “totality” phase of the total solar eclipse will begin at 11:30 pm on December 3 east of the Falkland Islands; It will then cross the Weddel Sea and West Antarctica and finish at 2:27 am on December 4 in front of the Gezt Ice Barrier (in Antarctica).
