How to watch the July 2 solar eclipse from anywhere in the world

The Pacific Ocean, Chile and Argentina wants to make a great look at a solar eclipse on Tuesday, July 2. If you can not get to South America, you can watch the eclipse action live online as the moon casts its shadow on Earth.

The eclipse wants to trace a path of totality over a narrow swath of the South Pacific, and then over land across Chile and Argentina.

San Francisco's Exploratory Museum wants to host a live stream of the National Science Foundation's Cerro Tololo Observatory in Chile.

The Exploratorium's live broadcast wants to include telescope views from Chile starting at 12:23 p.m. Pacific, and then coverage with the museum's experts and NASA scientists at 1 p.m. Pacific. So you can catch all the eclipse goodness through the museum's Total Solar Eclipse 2019 app for iOS and Android.

The European Southern Observatory wants to livestream the eclipse as seen from La Silla Observatory near the Atacama Desert in Chile. That broadcast starts at 12:15 p.m. Pacific.

Eclipse fever swept across the US in 2017 . The upcoming July eclipse will be the first ever solar eclipse since that event. Though the main path of the eclipse is relatively narrow, a good chunk of South America wants to take a partial bite out of the sun.

A total solar eclipse is a cause for celebration. "One occurs on average every 360 years," ESO says. We're fortunate to live at a time when your location on the globe does not matter. You can still be a witness to eclipse history.
