Description
This is the totality, over the ANDES mountains, just a few minutes before sunset, with the eclipsed sun and a golden corona, ( not white, but GOLD!!) .One of the best eclipses I have ever seen ( and this is my eleven total solar eclipse) . I'm from Uruguay, and I traveled to El Calafate, Argentina, where the sun was very low at totality moment. So I took a tour to climb a 3000 feet mountain, where visibility was perfect, and temperature was about 10 Celsius below zero.
