This is how the total solar eclipse was seen in Antarctica | Digital Trends Spanish

This December 4, the Antarctic territory witnessed an impressive total solar eclipse, a phenomenon that occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned and the natural satellite is between them.

Due to the isolation and remoteness of this territory, the eclipse could only be observed by a small number of people, mostly scientists working in Antarctica.

This is why NASA has published a video where you can see the entire eclipse. It is a record of almost two hours that was made from images provided by field researchers Theo Boris and Christian Lockwood, of the JM Pasachoff Antarctic Expedition.

In the video, when the Sun is completely covered, a kind of ghostly light appears around the Moon. It is the solar corona, or outer atmosphere, that cannot be seen when the star shines in the sky under normal conditions.

The next total solar eclipse on our planet will occur on April 20, 2023. The next will be recorded on April 8, 2024 and will pass through an extensive strip of land, being visible from Mexico to Texas, according to the Mashable site.

Of course, it is expected that many more people will be able to witness that event.

This is the extensive video that NASA published filmed from Antarctica so that no one is left without appreciating the impressive beauty of this phenomenon.

Meanwhile, several similar records have also been viralized on different social networks.

This morning the last one happened #Solar eclipse of the year, a total eclipse that could only be seen from Antarctica and it will be until 2039 that a similar event occurs in the area.

The video shows the sequence of the whole in accelerated time (the original lasts 4: 16min).
