Live webcasting for Total Solar Eclipse 2019 at La Silla

On 2 July, at 21:20 CEST, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) will provide a live webcast of the 2019 La Silla Total Solar Eclipse, should weather conditions be favourable and Internet broadband performs as expected. This is a unique opportunity to be part of the only total solar eclipse visible from an ESO Observatory for the next 212 years.

It will be a “raw” feed and will not include commentary but we will switch between sources regularly, featuring views from up to three small telescopes and also spectators at the Observatory.

We invite entities in our Member States and beyond to consider incorporating the webcast into any public events that they are planning around the eclipse.
