Solar eclipse at Easter Island

Easter Island solar eclipse

There was a total eclipse of the Sun on July 11th. Don’t feel bad if you missed it. It was really only visible over the southern part of the Pacific Ocean. Easter Island is one of the few spots of dry land that got a glimpse. This shot was taken by photographer Stephane Guisard and was featured on Astronomy Photo of the Day.

“View total solar eclipse while standing among the stone heads of Rapa Nui.”

It really does read like something from someone’s bucket list, doesn’t it? I regret not having been there.

    Never believed that it absolutely was this simple all things considered.
