The only total solar eclipse in the world this year will be shocked in the southern hemisphere from December 14 to early 15th, Beijing time, attracting global attention.
Astronomical experts said that the total solar eclipse is not visible in China. Interested public can learn about the grand occasion of “Tiangou swallowing the sun” through the Internet and other channels.
Total solar eclipse is one of the most spectacular phenomena. Astronomical forecasts show that the total duration of this total solar eclipse is more than four hours.
The total eclipse belt starts from the eastern part of the South Pacific, passes through Chile and Argentina, and ends in the South Atlantic Ocean. Fortunately, the largest food site falls on the mainland, in the province of Rio Negro in Argentina.
Shi Zhicheng, a member of the Chinese Astronomical Society and director of the Tianjin Astronomical Society, said that the total solar eclipse was very similar to that on July 2, 2019, and only passed through Chile and Argentina.
The difference is that the last time was visible in the evening of local time, and this time it was noon local time. Compared with the last time, the annular eclipse belt is more souther than the last time, which means that transportation is inconvenient and weather uncertainty.
Shi Zhicheng said that in recent years, the total solar eclipse has favored North and South America, and Australia will have good observation opportunities in a few years.
The last time the Chinese public saw a total solar eclipse at their doorstep was on March 9, 2016, and the next time it will wait until March 20, 2034, but only Xinjiang and western Tibet before sunset.
Catch up with a little tail, and a total solar eclipse visible in most parts of the country occurred on September 2, 2035.
