During the season 2015 in the High Arctic, Svalbard I had the opportunity to be there during the Total Solar Eclipse with some colleagues. We were really lucky because during the event the sky was completely clear and, in general, the weather was perfect for the moment. Was a breathtaking moment! During the main part of the eclipse the light has changed really fast and different beautiful colors colored the sky. The picture doesn’t show and cannot explain the real beauty of the moment but can just give you an idea.
EVENT – Total Solar Eclipse
PLACE – High Arctic, Svalbard
