Feb 15 – Partial Solar Eclipse:
A partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon covers only a part of the Sun, sometimes resembling a bite taken out of a cookie. This partial eclipse will only be visible in parts of Chile, Argentina, and Antarctica. At Bahia Blanca, the eclipse lasts from 18:27 to 19:45 (21:27 to 22:45 UTC), and 11% of the sun is covered at maximum eclipse. (http://www.moonwise.co.uk/sky.php)
