A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon completely blocks the Sun, revealing the Sun's beautiful outer atmosphere known as the corona.
The path of totality will only be visible in parts of the southern pacific Ocean, central Chile, and central Argentina. When it makes landfall, it's going to zip by pretty quickly. To experience several minutes of totality, you'll have to be in a boat in the deep south pacific. A partial eclipse will be visible in most parts of the southern Pacific Ocean and western South America.
