Only a few places can witness the event
The only place that will witness total solar eclipse is a small area of Chile and Argentina. This small area extends from La Serena which is situated in Chile to Buenos Aires which is south of it and is in Argentina. However, Buenos Aires is not included in the path.
The regions that are a middle-part of this small area is estimated to have Sun’s shadow for 2 minutes and 30 sec. While the places that are on the edge will have it only for 1 minute. Clouds may shorten this time is they decide to adorn the sky and irate people.
