 Total Solar Eclipse of 2021 December 4
 in Antarctica from the icecap, an eclipse flight or cruise

The point of greatest eclipse (totality phase during 1 min 54 sec) lies just at the edge of the Antarctic continent. The eclipse is the next in Saros after the historic total on 2003 November 23.
I’ll propose three options: first for about 35,000€, an Ilyushin 76 cargo aircraft will fly you straight from Punta Arenas in southern Chile to Union Glacier in Antarctica from where the eclipse can be observed; second an eclipse flight (5,000 to 10,000€) and third an eclipse cruise on a yacht (10,000 to 40,000€).

You can use this solar eclipse calculator to compute the local circumstances of the eclipse, and the solar eclipse timer notifies the beginning of the various events. A time exposure calculator is there to help you choose your camera settings.
