Looks pretty dark outside. And there's some weird numbers there or something.

Do you have any idea how freaking cold it is in Antarctica this time of year?  Why would anyone be there?

This total eclipse will be over my hometown in 2028, so there's that to look forward to.

Shouldn't this been greenlighted at some point where it will actually be useful?  It will be over 3 hours from now

There will only be one total eclipse in my area in my lifetime.  It was cloudy that day.

Haha!

The joke's on you. I can go outside and look up even though I'm not in Antarctica.

I tried to take photos through the welding lense on my phone, but failed :-/ but any excuse to sit on the roof at work and chill out for a hour.

Antarctica is in the Southern Hemisphere. You have to look down.

Don't forget to wear a parka though.

True, for some values of "up".

The USA gets a total solar eclipse in 2017.

Still three years off, but this is the real deal, a darkness-at-mid-day showstopper.

We haven't had one in decades.

I seem to remember one in grade school - viewable from Omaha somewhere between '85 and 91sh. They marched the whole school out onto the sidewalk so we could view it. It was either pretty damn awesome, if I remember correctly. But I think it was just a partial eclipse and only lasted a few minutes.

It's definitely the kind of thing you actually have to experience - watching a stream or recording isn't nearly the same.

Right, subby. Just look up and GO BLIND ! Why do you hate antarcticans? Are you anti-antarctica? Why?

Then we get another in 2024 that overlaps some of the viewing locations from 2017.

I remember one in Western New York somewhere around 1993-95. Same deal, I was in high school, everyone went outside to watch.
