 Partial Solar Eclipse of 2011 November 25
 in Antarctica

The last solar eclipse of 2011 was a partial and practically visible only from Antarctica with an interesting magnitude. The goal was to be at Union Glacier (Patriot Hills is now a secondary blue-ice runway) and possibly at the South Pole depending on the weather conditions.
Greatest eclipse is located at sea west of the Antarctic Peninsula where the eclipse on the horizon will have a magnitude of 0.9.

You can use this solar eclipse calculator to compute the local circumstances of the eclipse. A time exposure calculator is there to help you choose your camera settings.
