We are currently exploring the possibility of a workshop in La Serena, Chile for June 29 through July 7 of 2019. This workshop will coincide with the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on July 2nd. We will be exploring the historic city of La Serena, and the Chilean Andes in the days prior to and following the eclipse.
Some of the most important astronomical observatories are located in this part of Chile, so naturally the night sky is impressive. Part of the this workshop will concentrate on getting some amazing night sky images, and possibly visiting Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory.
Apart from a few VERY REMOTE South Pacific Islands, the only land based location to view this eclipse will be in Chile and Argentina. For more information on the specifics of this eclipse, check out the NASA Eclipse Page, or for more specific information for La Serena go to Time and Date website.
More details about this trip to come. Sign up for our mailing list to be informed about this amazing workshop opportunity.
