On March 20, 2015 one of the most important and spectacular celestial events in Norway in our century takes place: A total solar eclipse can be seen from Spitsbergen. Due to the weather conditions in this time of the year, Svalbard is beyond competition when it comes to expected visibility. On the North Pole the sun will be totally eclipsed as it comes into view after 6 months of polar night. This happens only every 400 000 – 500 000 years! In the Norwegian mainland more than 90 % of the Sun will be eclipsed. You can read more about Svalbard/Spitsbergen here:
