Even though the total solar eclipse happens tomorrow, you will probably not see it unless you are in Antarctica or at least close to it. The Sun hasn’t set in Antarctica since October this year. But on Saturday, December 4th, darkness will sweep across West Antarctica. The Moon will pass directly in front of the Sun, blocking its light and producing a total solar eclipse. This happens while Earth’s southernmost continent is currently experiencing a long summer’s day, one that stretches from mid-October until early April.
The only total solar eclipse of the year takes place on Saturday (Dec. 4), and if you live in the far south of the world you may be able to catch a glimpse. Alternatively, there might be a livestream available if the Antarctic weather holds.
