The Total Solar Eclipse of December 14, 2020, was seen over land only in parts of Chile and Argentina.

Pablo Barrios sent us the top composition showing the total solar eclipse surrounded by clouds above Valcheta, Río Negro, Argentina. The bottom image by Cristian López shows the eclipse with Venus, Mercury and Jupiter, visible to the naked eye at midday over La Lobería, Río Negro, Argentina. Remember to always protect your eyes when viewing the Sun.

The next total solar eclipse will pass over Antarctica and the Southern Ocean in December 2021.
