"Every eclipse is extraordinary," explains acclaimed astronomer Dr. Ed Krupp, who joins us on this trip. "It is, in fact, the most spectacular thing the sky does... there's really nothing quite as amazing to people as the effect in its entirety of a total solar eclipse." For the eclipse on December 14, 2020, we’ve lined up a private viewing in the area expected to have the longest duration of totality and the best weather conditions across all of South America. Based from a luxury tented camp on a private 22,000-acre family-owned ranch in the Neuquén Province of Argentina, we'll have the opportunity to revel in the celestial event far from crowds and light pollution, while gaining insight from Dr. Krupp. We'll also get to explore Patagonia's highest lights, including Torres del Paine.
