A group hoping to see the March 20 total solar eclipse, at far left, gets an early start walking out into Adventdalen, just beyond the east edge of Longyearbyen, as the sun rises into a largely clear sky at about 7 a.m. The weather forecast during the eclipse – which lasts from 10:11 a.m. and ends about two hours later, with the total blockage of the sun happening from 11:10:02-11:13:09 a.m. – is for partly cloudy skies, temperatures of -16C and mild winds.
About Post Author
I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
