People who have high blood pressure directly during an Eclipse can be a bad - keep with you the necessary medications just in case because the Sun affects the heart and blood vessels.

Whether or not you saw totality with your own eyes back on August 21, 2017 during the "Great American Eclipse" (or just a partial eclipse through some eclipse glasses), traveling to remote and/or unexpected destinations to share a magical moment with lucky locals and other sun-seekers is a great way to see the planet and its people.

What is so special about this total solar eclipse? This will mark the beginning of the partial phase of the eclipse.

Only that last few minutes of the long event, from positions on land in Chile and Argentina, will likely to be broadcast online, so tune in to Slooh, Exploratorium, and timeanddate.com for totality at 8:38 p.m. UT.

THIS WEEK a total solar eclipse will take place, the only one of 2019.

The first place in South America to see totality will be near La Serena in Chile, where the total eclipse will be visible at 16:39 local time (20:39 BST).

There are a number of websites and organizations that live stream the eclipse. Due to its coastal location, however, the city can easily be buried beneath large numbers of clouds - which would block the view of the spectacle.

Aurier fears injury may end his Cup of Nations tournament
This is his second global tournament with Mali , after he play all three games in the 2017 Afcon as they exited with two points. The Strasbourg player, who scored 10 Ligue 1 goals last season, helped his club side to win the French League Cup.

During a total solar eclipse, the moon passes between Earth and the sun, casting a small, dark shadow on our planet.

The shadow also will move in faster than during 2017, heightening the experience of sudden nightfall.

Tuesday's total solar eclipse is totally a worth to watch. But beyond its fantastic view, scientists grab the opportunity to study the sun and space. The corona or the sun's atmosphere is where solar weather and solar winds are prominent.

According to NASA, a total eclipse occurs somewhere on earth about every year and a half.

Many areas are expected to have a cloud-free sky including South America. 2019 is packed with six eclipses including January 6's partial solar eclipse and January 21's total lunar eclipse, also known as Super Blood Wolf Moon. This year's Mercury Transit will be the last one until 2032.

During totality, it is safe to view a solar eclipse.

Solar eclipses are only visible from within the area on Earth where the Moon's shadow falls. A solar Eclipse means reloading, and in this day you can try something new - it will definitely benefit You. It will, again, be visible from Chile and Argentina.
