Science & Observations of the Chilean Eclipse of 2019
By Jim Elkins
Our family had the wonderful opportunity of observing the 2019 solar eclipse together. We had a chance to tour the coast of Chile and see the countryside. Using our photos, we were able to do some science with the collaboration of some atmospheric scientists. We were able to observe the reactions to the eclipse by Chileans on a crowded beach, which was more interesting than the actual eclipse. I will show my portable tracker and camera setup so that I can travel lightly on standby airline tickets. I would encourage members to travel to see another solar eclipse over an adventurer’s paradise in Chile and Argentina on December 14, 2020.
