It literally takes planets and stars to align for a total solar eclipse to happen. It’s a phenomena that can actually happen as often as two to four times per year, but with our moon casting a shadow “merely“ 40 kilometres in diameter it takes centuries for a total eclipse to repeat at the same place.
Long story short…when it happens over our heads, we should make the most out of it! And this is exactly what Pedro Burns had in mind for December 14th 2020 when a total solar eclipse had been scheduled over his home country of Chile. The Villarica volcano laid directly in the path of the moon’s shadow and hence provided a perfect playground for a riding experience second to none.
