If you were lucky enough to be in the narrow path of totality last August when a total solar eclipse passed over the United States, you know that seeing a total solar eclipse requires a lot of planning. It also takes luck.
This phenomenon occurs just about once every 18 months — but the South American countries of Chile and Argentina will hit the jackpot in 2019 and 2020 when the moon's shadow zips across both twice in quick succession. Though you can witness totality from Argentina's Pampas grasslands on the eastern slopes of the Andes on July 02, 2019 and again on December 14, 2020, there are some compelling reasons to see this stunning spectacle from Chilean soil.
