Rare Solar Eclipse Plunges Chile Into Total Darkness

Thousands of tourists gathered across the north Chilean Atacama desert on 2 July to experience a rare total eclipse of the sun.

A group of blind men and women got to experience the astronomical event via a device that changes light frequencies into sound.

Chile has not witnessed an eclipse since 1592 but is the best place to watch the phenomenon, as it has the worldโ€™s clearest skies.
