And you don't even have to travel to see it.

No need to break out the eclipse glasses this year (unless you live within the path of totality): Astronomy lovers can live stream Tuesday's total solar eclipse over South America from the comfort of just about anywhere with WiFi. Total solar eclipse is going to begin at 3.22 pm local time in Chile.

It wasn't visible from the United States.

And NASA will be there to show you every second of it. But that will be a good one, with the diagonal path of totality extending northeast from Mexico all the way up through Canada's maritime provinces.

You'll have the best chance to see it if you visit Argentina or take a boat out into the Pacific Ocean.

"It's really impossible for people, when they're in the moment, to make a judgment over brief versus prolonged exposure", Quinn said.

Chilean President Sebastián Piñera is one of 150 "VIPs" with tickets to watch the eclipse at La Silla.

Children try on their special glasses to view tomorrow's total solar eclipse at Pedro Pablo Munoz school in La Higuera, Chile, Monday, July 1, 2019. The next three total solar eclipses all take place in the southern hemisphere on December 14, 2020, December 21, 2021 and April 20, 2023.

It is important to remember that there is no particular place: the eclipse begins at one point on the planet and ends at another.

The point of the greatest duration of totality - the point where total eclipse lasted longest - was reached around 7.25am, far out in the middle of the Pacific. Most eclipses move from west to east.

During a total eclipse, the moon completely obscures the sun, and a ring appears in the sky. This one will have a line of totality crossing Texas, through the Midwest, and over Indianapolis, Cleveland, Buffalo NY, over New England, and passing over ME and New Brunswick, Canada.

It's also the first one since August 2017, when millions of people in the U.S. were treated to the celestial event. To watch the celestial phenomenon with your vision intact, use solar eclipse glasses - they are fairly low-priced and look like old 3-D movie classes, fitted with solar filters in a cardboard frame.

However, as the moon reveals the sun, NASA said, people may be caught off guard, exposing their eyes to possible damage from the sun's ultraviolet rays.
