Unfortunately, Mexico will not be one of those lucky countries and again, the show will be missed.
As shown or as specified or as indicated UNAM Astronomy Institute, The phenomenon can be seen next Saturday in the Maldives, South Africa, Antarctica and southeast Australia, while NASA indicated that the best places to think about are the Argentine port in Falkland and Cape Town, South Africa. Then, there will be total solar eclipse Until 2024, but not all news is bad.
In an interview with Infobae MexicoPhD at the National Institute of Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (If you are), he said that in Republic A National Committee To prepare for the two big events that will come in 2023 and 2024.
In those years, they will be able to observe from the Republic A solar eclipse. It will happen a lot and it will be a once in a lifetime opportunity. will happen first October 14, 2023 And it will be void. This means that the moon will not completely cover the star.
