2020 Solar Eclipse Track

NASA will provide live coverage on Monday, Dec. 14, of a solar eclipse that will pass over South America, treating parts of Chile and Argentina to views of a total eclipse of the Sun.

A Spanish-language program will air on NASA Television and the public channel on the agency’s website.

A separate livestream of the eclipse without narration will air on the media channel.

The programming will air in conjunction with the eclipse.

The all-Spanish show will provide real-time views of the eclipse and discussions on how scientists use eclipses to study the Sun.

The hour-long Spanish show, “El eclipse solar total de América del Sur de 2020,” will air at 10:30 a.m. EST.

Two NASA scientists, Yari Collado-Vega and Bea Gallardo-Lacourt, will provide commentary during views of the eclipse, with the total eclipse visible during the show at 11:02 a.m.

The livestream, courtesy of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and captured through telescopes at the Observatorio Docente UC, Santa Martina, will play on the media channel from 9:40 a.m. to 12:31 p.m.

The Spanish show will also stream on NASA’s Spanish social media accounts.
