 Total Solar Eclipse of 2019 July 2
 in Chile, Argentina, Pitcairn Islands or aboard a Cruise Ship

The point of greatest eclipse (totality phase during 4 min 33 sec) lies in the Southern Pacific Ocean. Before reaching Chile, there is no landmass inside its totality path, but a small uninhabited atoll called Oeno (Pitcairn Islands). Going once again to Chile is rather tempting because of the good weather prospects and the observatories inside the path of totality, neverthless a remote observation from the Oeno island is even more enticing with a super-yacht.
Cruise ships, such as the Paul Gauguin, will very likely be in the path to maximize the duration, but for those who prefer to be on firm ground Chile provides the best weather prospects at the expense of a duration cut in half.

You can use this solar eclipse calculator to compute the local circumstances of the eclipse, and the solar eclipse timer notifies the beginning of the various events. A time exposure calculator is there to help you choose your camera settings.
