You may remember when a record number of Americans watched the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017. On July 2, 2019, it was South America's turn. Field Correspondent Brandon Clement witnessed the phenomenon first hand and captured the breath-taking views via drone. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/482509459189769/ During a solar eclipse, the moon passes between the sun and Earth, blocking all or part of the sun for a period of time. Parts of Chile and Argentina were lucky enough to see totality, where the sun is completely blocked and casts a shadow of the moon on the earth. People in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela could use special "eclipse glasses" to safely see a partial solar eclipse. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N693qfeRxE Credit: NASA NOAA's powerful GOES satellites provided a unique perspective of the phenomenon.
