Solar Eclipse, Antarctica

Solar Eclipse in Antarctica, filmed at Halley Station. My first ever solar eclipse, was great to see. Several of us spent hours the night before fanny-ing with filters from goggles held in front to welding glass. Which gave us a green look. Two red filters were added to bring it back to a real colour.

After all that we had cloud cover and a natural filter so we didn’t need anything, brilliant. 4:30am start was worth it.

Enjoy
