Gracias a San José de Jáchal

Our livestream concluded with an eclipsed sun setting behind the Andes.



Thank you to everyone in San José de Jáchal, Argentina, who helped us deliver a fabulous timeanddate.com livestream of last week’s total solar eclipse. The support we received from the Municipalidad de Jáchal was simply incredible; we’re especially grateful to Domingo Martinez and Matías Torres. Thank you also to Anibal Heredia for the following photos.

The return of the Moondance

In the 22 months since the ‘Great American’ total solar eclipse swept across the USA, we’ve had three total lunar eclipses and four partial solar eclipses. Now, the big Moondance is back…


On 2 July a total solar eclipse will take place over the South Pacific Ocean and a narrow strip of Chile and Argentina. I’ll be joining the team from timeanddate.com in San José de Jáchal — in the Argentinian province of San Juan — for a live broadcast of totality.


The path of totality for next week — where the sun is completely covered by the moon — is the (very narrow) dark red strip. The lighter regions indicate areas where a partial solar eclipse is visible.

An enormous thank you to Luis Domingo Martinez and Matías Torres at the Municipalidad de Jáchal for all their support.
