Solar Eclipse

As I write this there are just under 24 hours to go until the next total solar eclipse. Unfortunately, this eclipse is only visible from the Antartic so very few people will have the chance to see it there is a Russian base at Mirny and a group of German, Indian, Japanese and Russian bases near the western limit of the eclipse on the Antarctic continent. It seems that at Mirny the weather prospects look like they will offer a 36% chance of seeing the eclipse with temperatures around -7.2 °Celsius.
