Going to Svalbard

March 15, 2015

Sunday, March 15:  Since it’s not cold enough in New York, I’ve decided to head to Norway. Actually, I’m going to Svalbard, an archipelago of islands far north of Norway to see a total eclipse of the sun on March 20. Joining up with 2 friends and a whole lot of people on a Travel Quest tour. The company has done many eclipse tours and was recommended by Tony Hoffman and Eileen Renda, two friends from the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York. Packing cameras and cold weather gear for the trip. I fly on Icelandair Sunday night. And hoping for clear skies!

Camera stuff and special solar filters.
