Eclipse Hovers Over Patagonia

The eclipsed sun seems to hover over the horizon on Sunday, barely lighting the high, snowy plains of Patagonia in southern Argentina.

According to Telus World of Science's Dyer, the moments before and after totality can be just as thrilling as the solar eclipse itself.

"The twilight horizon colors, weird sharp shadows, and other fleeting phenomena [surrounding the eclipse] are so immersive and overwhelming," Dyer told National Geographic News last week.
