The world is about to witness a total solar eclipse on July 2, which is likely to last a total of four minutes and 33 seconds. The upcoming eclipse will be the sole total solar eclipse to take place this year. As per a report by The Weather Channel, the eclipse will be going through a 6,000-mile path but only a narrow zone of the Pacific Ocean and South America comes in the path of totality. It means people from only a handful of countries will be able to witness it directly. The starting point of the eclipse will be from 4,000 km east-northeast of Wellington, New Zealand, from where it will make the second landfall reaching central Chile, reported Space.com. From there, the shadow will go towards east-southeast direction through central Argentina and will eventually come to an end just before reaching Uruguay. So, the total solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Chile and Argentina only. A partial solar eclipse will be visible in countries like Ecuador, Brazil, Uruguay, and Paraguay. The museum based in San Francisco will stream the solar eclipse 2019 live all the way from the National Science Foundation’s Cerro Tololo Observatory in Chile. The live stream will kick off at 12:23pm PST (12:53 am India time).

The July 2019 solar eclipse is refreshingly positive. It joins a star in Gemini Constellation called Alhena that brings good health, honor, and riches. This is an excellent eclipse for enjoying good times with friends and especially your family. This star is good for artists and scientists. The spiritual nature of this star brings people together so it is a good omen for ending conflict through peace negotiations. A gentle but positive influence from Uranus adds to the creative and scientific influence of Alhena. Exciting breakthroughs and new developments will foster technological innovation and greater personal freedom. The long-term influence of Saturn sextile Neptune increases the likelihood of permanent settlements to international and personal disputes. Solar eclipse July 2019 can make your dreams come true through patience, open-mindedness, and hard work.

Günaydın canlarım, Bugün tam güneş tutulması yaşanacak. Güneş bile tutulabiliyorken, bizler de zaman zaman tutuluyoruz. Tüm hayvanların güneş tutulmalarında yuvalarına hızla geri dönmeleri gibi biz de yuvamıza, ama içimizdeki yuvaya dönüp, ruhumuzu, duygu ve düşüncelerimizi ziyaret ederek bizim en yüksek hayrımıza hizmet etmeyen her ne varsa, bırakabilmek için enfes bir süreç. Güneşin karanlığı, bizim aydınlığımıza açılan kapıyı açacak müsaade edersek. Otelde resepsiyona yazdırılan uyandırmalara benzer, böyle özel gökyüzü hareketleri, bazılarını uyandırır derin uykulardan. Harika bir gün dilerim hepimize🙏💜🙋✨🍀 Resim: Cedar Lee #love #positivity #cosmoenergy #kozmikenerji #şifa #healer #heilung #solareclipse #güneştutulması #goodmorning #change #recallhealing #kundalini #quantumhealing #meditation #prosperity #abundance #lightworker

Myths:

Many cultures view this time as a “bad omen” for pregnant women who are often advised to stay indoors with the children. The belief is that this celestial event can even cause physical deformities like cleft lips or birthmarks. But doctors and scientists have debunked this myth.

In India, a number of communities believe that one should refrain from eating or drinking during this period since the magnetic field and UV rays are extremely potent at this time. But once again scientists have debunked the myth.

☀️🌑Полное солнечное затмение 2 июля 2019 года ! . . Сегодня произойдет одно из самых главных астрономических событий этого года — полное ☀️солнечное затмение . . ➡️➡️Так называемое «Великое южноамериканское затмение» будет лучше всего видно в ЧИЛИ и АРГЕНТИНЕ, а также в юго-восточной части Тихого океана, где частичное затмение начнется в 12:55 дня по летнему восточному времени или в 16:55 по Гринвичу. . . ➡️При благоприятных погодных условиях наблюдатели из некоторых регионов Тихого океана и Южной Америки, в том числе в Эквадоре, Бразилии, Уругвае и Парагвае смогут увидеть частичное затмение Солнца. . . ‼️В остальных частях земного шара, в том числе в Казахстане – солнечного затмения видно НЕ будет . . ◾Следующее полное затмение Солнца произойдет 14 декабря 2020 года и будет вновь видно в Чили и Аргентине.
