The total lunar eclipse will be seen on the 21st this month in Cordoba, while a full solar eclipse will occur on July 2, according to the local astronomical observatory (OAC).
The first total eclipse will be from the Moon and will take place on January 21st. The second and much more singular, total solar eclipse, will occur on July 2nd.
Those of the Moon
Lunar eclipses occur when the Earth is positioned between the moon and the sun. The Earth blocks the sunlight that generates a shadow cone on our natural satellite, which culminates in the time when it causes the reddish color of the moon caused by the Earth's atmosphere.
This phenomenon is quite common and can be observed in all places on Earth that is overnight, OAC said.
Although the eclipse (phase of decline) will begin at 23.37 on January 20 and will end at 4.48 on January 21, Argentina's time, the most remarkable steps to observe with the naked eye will begin at 0.34 and end at 3.51 (corresponding to beginning and ending of the partial phase), when parts with light and parts with shadow can be seen.
The full eclipse, when the moon is completely covered with the shadow of the Earth, will occur between 1.41 and 2.43, and then there will be an effect known as the "Red Moon" caused by the differential refraction that the Earth's atmosphere produces the sun's rays.
It is important to note that this phenomenon will be noticed from all the places in the world where the moon is in its horizon at the time and that the way to be respected is to simply choose a place as dark as possible and look at The moon of a simple view (it's a relatively long process).
On Tuesday, July 2, there will be a total solar eclipse, which will be visible from the surface of Argentina. The maximum of the total will appear in the South Pacific, thousands of miles from the west coast of South America.
In Argentina it will be considered as total in the provinces of San Juan, San Luis, south of Cordoba, south of Santa Fe and north of Buenos Aires. It will happen at 17:40 and at a small altitude above the horizon.
It's such a rare event that will not be seen in our country until December 14, 2020. In return, December 5, 2048 can be seen in Patagonia.
