Yesterday, December 14th, we experienced a rare and very special astronomical event in southern Chile and Argentina: a total eclipse of the sun, with the moon passing between the sun and our planet, completely blocking the sun’s vital warmth and light and in some places turning day into absolute darkness for about 2 minutes.
