For the Solar Wind Sherpas, a new year means a new total solar eclipse (TSE). Though on average TSEs occur once every 18 months, it has been just under a year since our observations of the 2015 TSE in Svalbard. From the arctic we move on to the equator. Well, just above the equator (0 deg 42’34.71″N). This year’s TSE will be seen from Indonesia where we will be setting up in three separate locations: Plun Island (Group S1), Maba (S2 Group) and Kartika Buli (S3 Group).
Journey with us as we make our way to this remarkable place and prepare to observe this unmatched phenomenon. Though we will be in remote locations with little or no internet, I will do my best to update this blog as soon as possible.
