Skywatchers in parts of Chile and Argentina will see the Moon pass directly in front of the Sun, blocking out the light for just a few minutes.
It will be late in the day, however, and anyone lucky enough to be in the “path of totality” will be looking at the event close to the horizon.
As always, people are urged to take great care during an eclipse. Gazing into the Sun can damage the eyes.
Proper protection is needed, such as the use of approved solar glasses.
