Artist Marc Bennett brings The History of the Star of David to life through art that will support Soroka Medical Center's life-saving mission in Israel's Negev.

The History of the Star of David transcends cultural barriers with its message of perseverance in overcoming adversity. I believe it will quickly become a cultural landmark, uplifting all who view it.”

— Ambassador Dani Dayan, Consul General of Israel in New York

NEW YORK, NY, USA, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jewish identity has been the subject of many artists’ work. Chagall used color and light to illuminate the journey of the Jewish people. Nevelson’s sculpture paid tribute to the six million Holocaust victims. Today, artist Marc Bennett continues this tradition by asking the question, “What if the Star of David could speak?” Bennett created The History of the Star of David artwork to serve as a time capsule that invites us to discover the centuries-long evolution of Judaism’s iconic star, which bore witness to the depths and heights of Jewish culture throughout history. "The History of the Star of David speaks volumes for the Jewish nation. Bennett, has created a profound and colorful artistic vehicle to educate children, as well as adults, about Jewish history, culture and identity," remarks Nurit Greenger, executive director, Western Civilization Heritage, Israel Program Center.

Bennett’s collage traces the evolution of the Star of David, from its first known use through its most recent appearance on the flag of the State of Israel. The History of the Star of David artwork features 18 Star of David images meticulously selected for their historical significance and story-telling. One of the earliest known uses of the Star of David is a decorative stone carving from the synagogue in Capernaum, found near the Sea of Galilee in Israel. It is among the oldest synagogues in the world. The third star pictured in Bennett’s work highlights Theodor Herzl’s role in the formation of the Jewish nation. He is considered to have been the father of modern political Zionism and promoted Jewish migration to Israel.

The seventh star pictured in the collage marks one of the darkest chapters in Jewish history. This image shows a chuppa stone (wedding stone) from a synagogue built in 1726 in Altenkunstadt, Germany. For more than 200 years this synagogue was the cultural center of the Jewish municipality until “Kristallnacht” (Night of Broken Glass, November 1938) when a series of coordinated attacks, carried out by the Nazi party left Jewish homes, schools, and businesses in ruins. In 1988, the community replaced the stone with the hope of keeping the memory of Jewish culture alive. The last image shows the Israeli flag flying proudly during the Six-Day War in 1967. Here we see the same star that was once used as a sign of exclusion, humiliation and murder reborn as a symbol of national unity and Jewish pride.

Bennett originally created The History of the Star of David artwork as a gift donated in conjunction with congregants Judi and Alan Altman to Rabbi Mendel Mintz to mark the opening of The Aspen Jewish Community Center. As the artwork was installed several members of the JCC became intrigued and began asking about it. Rabbi Mintz realized, that Bennett’s art could be used as a teaching tool. This led to the artist conducting talks, which captivated both children and adults by illuminating their shared history. "The History of the Star of David brings to life our rich history, triumphs, and struggles, as well as our promising and vibrant future. It evokes a sense of survival and determination, as well as a celebration of Jewish culture, tradition and faith,” recalls Rabbi Mintz. Since then, Bennett’s artwork has created something of a movement. A number of prestigious institutions have acquired pieces from Bennett’s series including: Yad Vashem, the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, Sinai Temple Los Angeles, the Aspen Jewish Community Center, the Jona Goldrich Center for Digital Storytelling at USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education, Soroka Medical Center, and others.

In the spirit of tzedakah (charitable giving) Marc Bennett has joined forces with Soroka Medical Center. Located in Be’er Sheva, Soroka provides state-of-the-art medical care for the Negev’s 1.2 million residents living in Israel’s most diverse region. The hospital treats people from all walks of life regardless of income, race, religion, or politics. Through this collaboration, 10 percent of all History of the Star of David art sales worldwide will be donated to Soroka in perpetuity. Limited edition prints signed by the artist make an unforgettable gift for weddings, anniversaries, High Holy Days, and Hanukkah. Bennett’s beautifully finished metal and paper prints are available in various sizes perfect for the home, office, or institution and are available for purchase at www.StarofDavidArt.com.

Marc Bennett’s The History of the Star of David is immediately engaging, drawing the viewer into its world on many levels. "Bennett's artwork combines the pop sensibility of Andy Warhol with the mythological references and bold colors of Marc Chagall," remarks Arthur Chabon architect for The Aspen Jewish Community Center. Bennett’s careful selection and juxtaposition of the images of the Star of David establishes a stimulating narrative and visual rhythm. "The History of the Star of David transcends cultural barriers with its message of perseverance in overcoming adversity," states Ambassador Dani Dayan, Consul General of Israel in New York. More than mere art, The History of the Star of David educates and inspires meaningful dialogue on the trails of the past, while challenging us to confront the issues Jews face globally at present.

About the Artist
Marc Bennett is an artist and filmmaker born in Brooklyn, NY, now residing in Aspen, CO. Bennett’s artwork has been used in campaigns to fundraise and elevate awareness for numerous organizations such as, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and the Museum of Tolerance. Bennett is committed to using art and film as visual languages that entertain, educate, enlighten, and inspire positive change worldwide.

2 de julio, 2019 Eclipse solar total Argentina

En un momento, el Sol brillaba intensamente en el cielo, y en otro momento, la sombra de la Luna lo cubrió por completo, sumergiendo el mundo en el crepúsculo.

Los observadores de Eclipse han reportado cosas extrañas sucediendo cuando el eclipse oscurece repentinamente el paisaje, incluyendo animales nocturnos que emergen durante el día.”

— NASA

BUENO AIRES, ARGENTINA, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — La tierra experimentó un ambiente nocturno por poco más de dos minutos, y durante ese tiempo, niveles muy bajos de luz alcanzaron la tierra.

El eclipse solar del 21 de agosto de 2017 fue un increíble evento celestial que nos dejó esperando el próximo eclipse total. Aproximadamente cada 18 meses, se produce un eclipse total de sol en cualquier lugar de nuestro planeta, con el próximo programado para el 2 de julio de 2019. Los investigadores aprovecharán esta oportunidad para estudiar el sistema de energía del Sol, la Luna y la Tierra.

Durante el eclipse de 2017, un equipo de científicos de la NASA trabajó para recopilar datos de la tierra y los satélites antes, durante y después del eclipse total de sol, para simular el eclipse utilizando un modelo de transferencia radiativa 3D.

Este modelo es importante para desarrollar cálculos para mejorar la investigación sobre la energía solar que llega a la tierra y la comprensión de las nubes, que desempeñan un papel clave en la regulación del sistema energético de la Tierra. Recopilar datos valiosos del eclipse total de sol en Argentina el 2 de julio de 2019, puede servir para investigar más sobre el complejo funcionamiento de los sistemas de energía de nuestro planeta.

El sistema de energía de la Tierra trabaja para mantener un equilibrio entre la radiación saliente en el espacio de la Tierra y la radiación entrante a la Tierra desde el Sol. Este sistema también se conoce como el presupuesto de energía de la Tierra, y las nubes desempeñan un papel importante en su equilibrio.

Durante el eclipse solar total en 2019, la Luna proyectará una gran sombra en las regiones del Pacífico Sur, Chile y Argentina. La totalidad en Argentina será visible desde las provincias de Buenos Aires, Córdoba, La Rioja, San Luis, San Juan y Santa Fe, y durará aproximadamente 2 minutos y 30 segundos.

Los científicos esperan aprovechar esta oportunidad para recopilar datos con equipos terrestres y espaciales y aprender sobre el impacto de la sombra de la Luna en la cantidad de luz solar que llega a la superficie de nuestro planeta.
Además, el cálculo de la energía que llega a la Tierra gracias a las mediciones utilizadas durante eclipses anteriores ayudará a comprender mejor el sistema de energía.

La sombra de la Luna que bloquea al Sol durante el eclipse solar total no tiene las mismas propiedades que las nubes que bloquean la luz del Sol para que no alcancen la superficie. Sin embargo, estos fenómenos son similares en los cálculos matemáticos utilizados para comprender su impacto. Como resultado, el conocimiento reunido del evento de la sombra de la Luna podría ayudar a aprender sobre las nubes, especialmente más gruesas, observadas a baja altitud, nubes, que podrían cubrir aproximadamente el 30 por ciento del cielo en ese momento.

El eclipse solar total de 2017 simulado en una transferencia radiativa en 3D marcó el comienzo de la investigación sobre la energía solar que llega a la Tierra. Los modelos existentes representan imágenes unidimensionales de nubes, que ayudan a realizar cálculos para comprender la atmósfera de la Tierra. Sin embargo, los cálculos tridimensionales pueden proporcionar resultados más precisos, ya que reflejan la energía del Sol en varias direcciones, incluidas la parte superior, la parte inferior y los lados de las nubes.

Si los científicos reúnen datos adicionales del eclipse solar total de 2019 en Argentina, la técnica desarrollada en 2017 podría mejorarse aún más. Justo antes y después del eclipse, los investigadores pudieron medir la cantidad de gases que se absorben en la atmósfera, incluido el dióxido de nitrógeno, el ozono y las partículas de aerosol para el uso en el modelo.

Su implementación exitosa resultará en el desarrollo de una herramienta para usar en modelos climáticos y comprender el gasto y el clima de la Tierra.

Los equipos de investigación de la NASA han estado investigando el gasto de energía de la Tierra durante décadas. Su EPIC, o cámara de imágenes policromáticas de la Tierra, se usó para observar la luz que sale del planeta, mientras que los instrumentos satelitales MODIS proporcionaron datos sobre las condiciones en la atmósfera y en la superficie antes y después del eclipse total.

La larga investigación sobre la energía solar que llega a la atmósfera de la Tierra ha sido posible gracias a las misiones ACRIMSAT, SOLSTICE (1991) y SORCE (2003) y la serie de instrumentos llamada CERES (2011).

Sólo queda una semana antes del gran eclipse solar total en Argentina. No te pierdas este espectacular evento celestial. Protége tus preciosos ojos. Consigue tus anteojos para ver el eclipse solar con seguridad hoy antes de que el precio suba. ¡No quedaran mas anteojos la próxima semana!

Gafas de eclipse solar Argentina 2 de julio de 2019

El eclipse solar del 2 de julio de 2019 se acerca y, dado que hay un número creciente de espectadores de eclipse potencialmente inseguros en el mercado.

Mirar directamente al sol, incluso cuando está parcialmente cubierto por la luna, puede causar daño ocular grave o ceguera. NUNCA mire un eclipse solar parcial sin la protección adecuada de los ojos.”

— Rachael Rettner, Senior Writer LiveScience.com

MONTEVIDEO , URUGUAY, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Antes, todo lo que necesitaba para asegurarse de que sus anteojos o visores portátiles para el eclipse solar sean seguros era buscar el logotipo de ISO (Organización Internacional de Estandarización). Sin embargo, simplemente afirmar que el producto cumple con la norma de seguridad internacional ISO 12312-2 para los filtros utilizados en los visores de eclipse solar ya no es suficiente para garantizar la seguridad del producto. ¿Por qué? Debido a que varias empresas crean gafas y visores de eclipse solar falsos e imprimen el logotipo ISO y la etiqueta de certificación ISO en esos dispositivos. Sin embargo, esos lentes están hechos con materiales baratos que no son seguros para las personas, ya que no bloquean la radiación infrarroja, ultravioleta y visible del Sol.

Esas empresas no tienen en cuenta la salud de las personas y, con frecuencia, respaldan sus afirmaciones falsas con resultados falsos de sus productos.

Por esa razón, es importante ser cauteloso al elegir lentes de eclipse solar y solo comprar las gafas de fabricantes autorizados y creíbles. Puede encontrar una lista de proveedores acreditados de AAS. La lista se compiló después de verificar el papeleo ISO de cada fabricante para asegurarse de que los documentos están en orden y que el producto se probó en una instalación autorizada.

¿Cuál es la mejor manera de averiguar si sus lentes de eclipse son falsos? A través de un filtro solar seguro, no se puede ver ninguna fuente de luz que sea el Sol en sí o que sea comparable en brillo. Las fuentes de luz comparables al Sol incluyen el reflejo del Sol en el espejo o un metal brillante, un incandescente sin brillo, un halógeno brillante, un LED blanco brillante, bombillas fluorescentes compactas y un soplete para soldar. Puede ver estas fuentes a través de un filtro seguro, pero aparecerán tenues. Sin embargo, si ve artefactos de iluminación domésticos o cualquier otra cosa con brillo normal, puede cuestionar la calidad de su visor solar. Agregue a eso un proveedor cuestionable, y eso lo hace ciertamente inseguro.

Las gafas de eclipse de calidad están diseñadas para mostrar la imagen del sol de manera clara y cómoda, con el cielo oscuro que lo rodea. Por lo tanto, cuando lo use, tenga cuidado si sus lentes muestran que el sol está desenfocado, demasiado brillante o con un fondo borroso. Eso significa que el lente es inseguro y de mala calidad.

Tenga en cuenta que las gafas eclipse solar completamente seguras solo provienen de fabricantes de renombre y cumplen con la norma internacional de seguridad ISO 12312-2. Esto es importante porque las gafas eclipse seguras no solo hacen que sea cómodo para usted mirar el sol, sino que también bloquean la radiación UV e IR para proteger su salud de sus efectos dañinos.

Se cree que es perfectamente seguro mirar al sol sin usar los lentes durante la fase de totalidad cuando la Luna bloquea el Sol por completo. El 2 de julio de 2019, la totalidad será visible en las provincias de Buenos Aires, Córdoba, La Rioja, San Juan, San Luis y Santa Fe y tomará aproximadamente 2 minutos y 30 segundos, según la ubicación. Las ciudades en la ruta de la totalidad incluyen Río Cuarto, San Juan, Villa Dolores, Dolores, Lujan y Merlo.

Si se encuentra en la ruta de la totalidad, es seguro mirar el Sol sin gafas solo durante la fase de totalidad. Sin embargo, antes y después de la totalidad, y durante todo el eclipse para los que están fuera de la trayectoria de la totalidad, los lentes solares son necesarios para la seguridad. Los filtros solares se venden como gafas o visores de cartón de mano. No es seguro usar gafas de sol normales para mirar directamente al sol.

Aquí hay instrucciones actualizadas sobre cómo usar de manera segura las gafas de eclipse solar y los visores portátiles:

Asegúrese de inspeccionar sus gafas o visor antes de usarlos.

Compruebe si hay rasgaduras, rasguños u otros daños y lea las instrucciones que vienen con el embalaje.

Los niños pueden usar filtros solares solo bajo la supervisión de un adulto.
Use sus lentes solares sobre sus anteojos normales si normalmente los usa.

No te pongas ni te quites las gafas eclipse mientras miras el sol.

No use ningún dispositivo óptico como una cámara o binoculares para mirar el Sol a menos que esté en una fase de totalidad.

No utilice ningún dispositivo óptico para mirar el Sol mientras lleva puestas sus gafas eclipse o sosteniendo el visor. Los rayos del Sol concentrados podrían dañar el filtro solar y causar lesiones.

Si desea utilizar un filtro solar con un dispositivo óptico, consulte a un astrónomo de antemano. Además, tenga en cuenta que se debe colocar un filtro solar en la parte frontal del dispositivo.

Puedes eliminar tu filtro solar solo cuando la Luna cubra completamente el Sol si estás dentro del camino de la totalidad. Una vez que el Sol comienza a reaparecer, asegúrese de reemplazar su visor solar.

Siempre use el visor solar para mirar el Sol si está fuera del camino de la totalidad.

Antes de la adopción de la norma de seguridad internacional ISO 12312-2 en 2015, los visores solares solo duraban tres años, y solo se podían usar durante tres minutos para mirar el sol. Sin embargo, los filtros diseñados hoy en día son muy duraderos y, a menos que estén dañados, se pueden usar indefinidamente. Además, las nuevas gafas de eclipse que cumplen con la norma de seguridad ISO 12312-2 y le permiten ver el eclipse todo el tiempo que desee.

Usted puede comprar anteojos para ver seguramente el eclipse solar certificados exclusivamente en su tienda RedPagos en Montevideo. Esta es la única tienda en Montevideo con anteojos para el eclipse certificados ISO, CE, y SunSafe. No espere ya que se agotaran existencias.

A new article by Dr. Sohail Aman reviews the symptoms, causes, risk factors of liver cancer, as well as preventive measures.

Sohail Aman, MD (N/A:N/A)

Liver malignancy can be prevented to a certain extent. Preventive measures include reducing the risk of cirrhosis by avoiding or minimizing alcohol and substance consumption.”

— Sohail Aman, MD, medical consultant (Maryland and Alabama)

MOBILE, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, June 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Liver cancer is a malignant disease where the liver cells proliferate uncontrollably. This results in an abnormal growth of malignant cells. These tumors are destructive in nature since they gradually start invading healthy cells, turning them into malignant ones as well.

Medical Consultant Sohail Aman, has published an article on this issue, which is available on his blog at https://sohailamanmd.home.blog/

Liver cancer is not to be confused with cancers that originate is a different region or organ of the body and then spread to the liver, as such cancers are referred to as metastatic cancers. For instance, metastatic colon cancer originates in the colon and then later invades the cells of the liver, too, but this will not be classified as liver cancer. Liver cancer is of different types with the most common ones being:

* Hepatocellular carcinoma
* Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma
* Hepatoblastoma

Symptoms

Most people diagnosed with liver cancer start displaying certain signs and symptoms prior to the diagnosis. These indicators make the diagnosis easier, and an early diagnosis can save lives. Some of the symptoms are:

* Unexplained, sudden weight loss
* Reduced appetite
* Pain in the upper abdominal region
* Nausea and vomiting
* General weakness, drowsiness, and fatigue
* Jaundice
* Abdominal swelling
* White, chalky stools

Causes

The exact cause of liver malignancy is the changes that develop in the liver cells; such changes, which are also known as mutations, take place in the DNA. These genetic mutations then lead to increased production of the malignant cells, causing the abnormal growth mass to increase in size and invade the healthy cells as well. Trigger factors that can bring about such changes in the DNA are often diseases like chronic hepatitis infections. However, at times, liver cancer can also develop with no pre-existing underlying diseases.

Risk Factors

Certain risk factors increase the chances of some individuals of developing liver tumors. These factors include:

* A chronic infection caused by Hepatitis B and C viruses is reported to increase the risk of developing liver cancer significantly.
* Conditions such as Cirrhosis, which is essentially irreversible liver scarring, damage the tissues in the liver and increase the chances of liver tumors. This, in turn, increases your chances of developing liver cancer.
* Certain inherited liver diseases.
* Diabetes
* Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
* Aflatoxin exposure
* Excessive alcohol consumption and substance abuse

Prevention

Liver malignancy can be prevented to a certain extent. Preventive measures include reducing the risk of cirrhosis by avoiding or minimizing alcohol and substance consumption. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is also very vital; this can be achieved by consuming a healthy and balanced diet, regularly exercising, being active, and avoiding alcohol consumption and smoking. Other measures include getting vaccinated against associated diseases such as hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Regular liver screenings and checkups allow doctors to assess the health of a patient’s liver and catch any early signs of liver cancer. As said earlier in this article, the earlier the diagnosis, the better the chances are for the patient to beat the cancer.

However, if you are experiencing any of the above signs and symptoms or are suffering from either of the two hepatitis viruses, it is highly advised to seek immediate medical assistance and get yourself screened for liver scarring or cancer.

About Dr. Sohail Aman

Dr. Aman is a Consultant in Internal Medicine in Cambridge, Maryland and Mobile, Alabama. He graduated from Medical School with honors in 1992, and has completed several post-graduate training programs in internal medicine, emergency medicine, neurology, and infectious diseases.

AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF HEART FAILURE NURSES PARTNERS TO DEVELOP NEW HEART FAILURE PATIENT FOUNDATION

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, June 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Currently there are over 6.5 million adults in the U.S. living with heart failure which affects the ability of the heart to pump blood to the body. Heart Failure is a debilitating and life-threatening condition and is the leading cause of hospitalization among Americans over the age of 65. Heart failure presents a major and growing health-economic burden that currently exceeds $30 billion in the United States, which accounts for both direct and indirect costs. When a patient receives the diagnosis of heart failure it has a profound emotional impact on patients and their families. This diagnosis is often frightening; however, there are many treatments and therapies that can help individuals live long and productive lives.

The American Association of Heart Failure Nurses discovered a void in the standard for educating the Heart Failure Patient, the public and medical community about Heart Failure. To address this need, the non-profit Heart Failure Patient Foundation was created. This is the first and only US based foundation dedicated specifically to the heart failure patient and caregiver. “The Heart Failure Patient Foundation is designed to empower patients, their families and caregivers with accurate timely educational information and resources regarding prevention, diagnosis, self-care and treatment options, to promote shared informed decisions and active participation in their care” Marilyn Prasun, PhD, CCNS-BC, CNL, CHFN, FAHA.

The Board of the Heart Failure Patient Foundation was created from HF clinicians, patients, caregivers and business professionals to provide awareness, educational resources networking opportunities for patients, families, caregivers and healthcare providers.

The focus of the foundation is to raise awareness to improve the quality of life for patients with heart failure. “As a caregiver myself, I learned that it is important to be the bridge between clinician and the patient. When a patient is diagnosed they are scared, confused, and sometimes have a difficult time sharing their concerns. This foundation will help both the patient and the caregiver become educated and able to identify and manage heart failure rick factors” Janice Tippett.

The more we talk about Heart Failure and get the proper information to patients and caregivers, the more we can turn it into heart success

Key Takeaways:
The Heart Failure Foundation will:
• Promote awareness, prevention and treatment of heart failure.
• Provide access to information and educational resources to patients, families, caregivers and healthcare providers.
• Facilitate networking opportunities for patients, families, caregivers and healthcare providers to share heart failure information.
• Increase heart failure awareness among influential groups and the public.
• Engage key stakeholders who will champion development and implementation of educational resources.
• Promote heart failure advances and research.

About The Heart Failure Patient Foundation

The mission of The Heart Failure Patient Foundation is to raise awareness to improve the quality of life for patients with heart failure, by providing patients and their families, caregivers, nurses and others with information, education, networking opportunities, and related resources.

Eclipse Solar Total el 2 de julio de 2019

El mejor lugar para con cielo despejado para ver el próximo Eclipse solar del 2 de julio es la ladera este de los Andes.

In Bella Vista, the chance of a wet day over the course of July is gradually decreasing, starting the month at 7% and ending it at 5%.”

BUENO AIRES, ARGENTINA, June 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — El eclipse total del 2 de julio de 2019 se produce durante el invierno en el hemisferio sur, pero el cielo nublado no parece estar en el pronóstico, por lo que habrá varias oportunidades para una buena vista del eclipse total. El Gran Eclipse de América Latina comenzará en el Pacífico Sur y regresará al océano, cruzando solo dos países en tierra, Chile y Argentina.

Las provincias en el camino de la totalidad incluyen Córdoba, La Rioja, Buenos Aires, San Juan, San Luis y Santa Fe. Las ciudades en el camino de la totalidad son San Juan, Villa Dolores, Río Cuarto, Lujan, Dolores y Merlo. El resto de Argentina observará un eclipse solar parcial, pero incluso en el sur, el Sol estará cubierto en un 50%. En Buenos Aires, la capital, se cubrirá el 99% del Sol.

Al este de las montañas de los Andes, la sombra de la Luna pasará a través de las regiones de Cuyo y La Pampa en Argentina, terminando cerca de Buenos Aires poco antes del atardecer. Tanto Cuyo como La Pampa tienen un clima bastante soleado y seco, pero pueden no ser los lugares perfectos para observar el eclipse debido a las nubes. Las fotos tomadas desde satélites a menudo muestran nubes cubiertas en la Pampa.

Será mejor para los cazadores de eclipses en Argentina observar el eclipse desde la ladera oriental de las montañas de los Andes, donde la capa de nubes es más delgada. Para aquellos que también quieran capturar la totalidad más larga, la ciudad de San Juan funcionaría mejor, donde la totalidad alcanzará aproximadamente 2 minutos y 30 segundos, mientras que la provincia de Buenos Aires tendrá la totalidad más corta en aproximadamente 2 minutos y 5 segundos.

El eclipse parcial en Argentina comenzará alrededor de las 4 p.m. Hora local en el sur y alrededor de las 4:40 p.m. en el norte del pais. La totalidad en San Juan comenzará aproximadamente a las 5:39 hora local y aproximadamente a las 5:42 en Buenos Aires. El eclipse parcial en todo el país terminará aproximadamente a las 6:20 – 6:40 p.m.

Clima argentino en el día del eclipse

Será el invierno en julio en Argentina, por lo que los cazadores de eclipses esperan capturar buenas condiciones climáticas para observar el eclipse solar total. Las montañas de los Andes actúan como un escudo contra la humedad proveniente del Pacífico Sur, mientras que el paisaje llano del centro de Argentina no impide que la humedad del Atlántico penetre en la tierra. Estos sistemas meteorológicos seguirán la pista del eclipse. La buena noticia es que las laderas de los Andes en el lado argentino presentan condiciones climáticas favorables para observar el eclipse, ya que la humedad del Atlántico no llega a la zona.

Las mejores oportunidades para ver el eclipse, basadas en mediciones a nivel del suelo y satelitales, tienen a los observadores de las laderas orientales de los Andes, incluidas Bella Vista y La Iglesia. Esos pequeños pueblos se encuentran en una llanura abierta, donde se predice que será la menor cantidad de nubes a lo largo de la pista del eclipse. Bella Vista se encuentra a 33 km de la ciudad de Rodeo y a 80 km de San José de Jachal.

Las ciudades de San Juan y San José de Jachal también son lugares adecuados para observar la totalidad. El clima allí es seco, pero la cantidad de nubes puede ser alta en el área. Bella Vista está ubicada en un valle, similar en geografía y clima a Death Valley en California. Posee uno de los climas más secos y soleados de la Argentina.

Cuando el área está nublada, es debido a las nubes sopladas por el viento de los picos cercanos. Dado que se forman a temperaturas frías, a menudo son semitransparentes. Entonces, incluso si está nublado en el día del eclipse, el espectáculo no se vería completamente oculto por las nubes.

A medida que la totalidad se mueve hacia el este, cruzando el soleado Merlo, ubicado cerca de una cadena montañosa, se bloqueará la humedad procedente del Atlántico. Sin embargo, más cerca de Buenos Aires, el clima se nubla, por lo que los observadores de eclipses que deseen experimentar unos 2 minutos de totalidad en la región tendrán que buscar una buena ubicación y esperar un cielo despejado.
