Southeast Argentina’s Patagonia was one of the best places in the country to observe the partial solar eclipse that occurred on Saturday afternoon. The moon It was intertwined between the Sun and Earth, creating an “as eaten” effect, covering roughly 39% of its surface, according to Conicet researcher Beatriz Garcia.
The partial solar eclipse that occurred on Saturday was the first of four astronomical events that will occur this year and can be seen in different proportions in the Southern Cone, Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and in the Pacific Ocean with the sun being “in the west”, meaning that it occurred between 5:36 pm and 6 pm :38 p.m., Argentina time, the astronomer explained in detail.
“When the moon stands between the sun and the earth, a solar eclipse occurs, but for it to be total, the cone of the moon’s shadow must touch the earth, which is not the case because it is the cone of the person who touches it, then the sun disk is not completely hidden,” the specialist explained.
The astronomer determined that the moon touched the edge of the sun at about 5:36 pm, and passed in front of it partially covering it. Garcia advances, “The surface of the Sun can be described as being a little eaten, because the Moon will cover 39% of the solar disk.”
