 Total Lunar Eclipse of 2004 October 27-28
 near Miñiques & Miscanti lagoons, Chile

During my stay in Chile and Bolivia, the area around the 4,200 meters high (13,800 ft.) Miñiques and Miscanti lagoons will be the perfect spot to observe the Total Lunar Eclipse of October 27-28, 2004. The viewing site is located at the edge of the driest desert on Earth: the Atacama; the weather should be nice at this time of the year.
This page will be updated in December 2004.
