Past Tours

Svalbard, Norway, 2015
Total Solar Eclipse Svalbard
Clear skies from horizon to horizon, low solar elevation, and arid arctic air gave us what may be the most beautiful and, optically, the clearest eclipse to date!   Cold temperatures brought its own challenges but what a view..   Similar to the harvest moon or the sunrise, by skimming the mountains we had the optical illusion of a larger object!
