Experiment - Science by Children

Yilesca and Manuel live in Cachiyuyo, a town in northern Chile, and they are ready to have a great experience: they will see a total eclipse of the sun, they are very anxious, nervous and excited to understand how and why total darkness will occur. To learn more they meet Alvaro Rojas, a Chilean astronomer who explains the phenomenon to them. Together they experience the exciting moment.
