 Partial Solar Eclipse of 2015 September 13
 in Antarctica

This partial solar eclipse will be mainly visible from Antarctica in order to get an interesting magnitude. A return to the russian Novolazarevskaya research station and its blue-ice runway would likely offer great view and possibly good weather conditions, the same being true for the french-italian Concordia research station.
In order to be able to make the whole return trip during the weekend, I will travel to South Africa for a stay of less than a day at Cape L’Agulhas before flying back to Europe.

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.

The best view will be from the Russian research station of Novolazarevskaya. Having a big smile barely hanging over the icy horizon is nice (see the one in 2011). Unfortunately it’s too early in the season to fly there.

The view from the Concordia Franco-Italian research station will not be as good although the weather is likely better and colder.
