Have you been gearing up and packing for the December 4th total solar eclipse? If not, you are not alone! The path of totality for this eclipse will be limited to distant Antarctica and the surrounding waters. So very few people will have snow boots on the ground there to enjoy the 1':54″ long view of the solar corona.
We know of one hardy group on their way to the seventh continent from Williams College in Massachusetts. If conditions are good on Eclipse Day, we hope to have images from their expedition soon after. We'll also learn why eclipses were a matter of life or death in ancient Babylonian and name-drop some Bronx High School of Science alumni.
