An Arctic Eclipse - a talk by Mike Frost

 

On March 20th 2015 a total eclipse of the Sun swept across the North Atlantic. The only places where a total eclipse could be seen from land were the Faroe Islands (where it was largely clouded out) and the territory of Svalbard in the High Arctic.

 

I went to Longyearbyen on Svalbard, and then Tromso in northern Norway, with the Totally Insane Travel Society, a bunch of madcap and very talented imagers. This is the story of our arctic eclipse, a stunning sight in cloudless skies. And polar bears, shadow bands, frostbite, engima machines, fata morgana, reindeer pizza and pink bottoms.

 

Take a look at our interview with Gunn-Mari Eliseussen for Norwegian Television.

 

Next talk Gerhana Mata Hari
