This year will see two awe-inspiring solar eclipses take place – one in June and one in December. In December, only those in the southern parts of South America and southwestern Africa will be able to view the eclipse, however, on June 21st, viewers across Eastern Europe, eastern Africa and parts of Asia were all lucky enough to experience this rare celestial event firsthand.
In the wake of this memorable event, we look back on photographs of Chile’s first total solar eclipse in decades, captured with the Galaxy S10+. In July of 2019 Iván Castro, a photographer who specializes in capturing eclipses, photographed this exciting moment from the desert at the remote Chilean town of La Higuera, while fellow photographer Tomás Westenenk used another Galaxy S10+ to take photographs from an airplane.
Below, check out some of the best images captured on that magical day using the powerful camera on the Galaxy S10+:
