2015 Solar Eclipse - Spitzbergen / Faroe Islands

By Mark Sukhija

The 20th March, 2015 will see a total solar eclipse in the Atlantic Ocean, Thorshavn on the Faroe Islands, Spitzbergen and the North Pole. Average cloud cover during March for these regions is high so visbility is likely to be limited. The maximum eclipse length will be 2 minutes 49 seconds.

Current eclipse plans

Currently we have no definative plans for this eclipse. But booking early will be essential as accomodation is likely to be in very short supply given the eclipse path.

Eclipse tour operators

Tour operators are invited to submit their current plans to me as I will be keeping a record of whos going where and when. A strong preference is given to operators giving a link back to this site.
