Partial Eclipse Makes for Stunning Sunset in Chile

A partial solar eclipse made for a unique sunset, as seen across the Pacific Ocean from Algarrobo, Chile, on Saturday, April 30.

Video recorded by Fernando Valencia Formas shows a crescent shadow on the top of the sun as it falls behind a tangerine skyline.

Formas shared the video on Twitter, and described the sun as appearing to have a “bite” taken out of it.

NASA said “people in parts of southern South America, Antarctica, and the Pacific and Southern Oceans will have a chance to witness a partial eclipse of the Sun just before and during sunset.” Credit: Fernando Valencia Formas via Storyful
