The scheduled time will be 14:06 Spanish time , so you can see this wonder while you are eating, playing on the beach or in the office, if you have already returned to work.

To give you an idea of ​​the dimension of the passage of this celestial body, it is of similar size that caused the extinction of dinousarios 65 million years ago in the present Yucatan peninsula in Mexico.
