Total Solar Eclipse on July 11, 2010
On Sunday, 2010 July 11, NASA releases a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses Earth's southern Hemisphere. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow crosses the South Pacific Ocean where it makes no landfall except for Mangaia (Cook Islands) and Easter Island (Isla de Pascua). The path of totality ends just after reaching southern Chile and Argentina. The Moon's penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering the South Pacific and southern South America.

Though no live broadcast of the eclipse is currently planned, the National Geographic Channel will broadcast video from the eclipse at 11:00pm EST on Sunday evening. The "Easter Island Eclipse" will also be featured on National Geographic's Naked Science episode on July 15th.
