South American Eclipse 2019 – 04 July Webinar: “Share Your Eclipse Experiences”
On 02 July 2019, a total solar eclipse will pass across the southern part of South America. The eclipse will begin over the Pacific Ocean, and the lunar shadow will enter South America near La Serena, Chile, and will end near Chascomús, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Outside this path, a partial solar eclipse will be visible in the rest of Chile and Argentina, as well as in Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay; and in parts of Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela, and Panama.
On Thursday, 04 July, (9:30 a.m. EDT/13:30 UTC), the webinar “Share Your Eclipse Experiences” will be presented. Taking place right after the eclipse, this webinar provides the opportunity for teachers and students to share experiences with a NASA and GLOBE audience. What did you observe in general during the eclipse? Was the experience what you expected?
This is Webinar #3 in a series of webinars that are intended for GLOBE teachers and students in South America (especially Argentina and Chile; however, they are open to anyone who is interested) to learn about eclipses, to prepare to collect GLOBE data, and to get some tips for analyzing the data they collect. The webinars will be held in Spanish.
