From instagram.com/nytimes: “Tourists from all around the world have traveled here to see the eclipse,” Tine Mari Thornes writes from Longyearbyen, in Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago. “I have seen a partial eclipse before, but nothing like this.”
This is an absolutely stunning view of the recent solar eclipse as seen from the Stratosphere. Universe Today recently shared this incredible image on their site from French journalist Guillaume Cannat. Flying in a Falcon 7X jet 48,000 feet up, he took this surreal photo.
Traveling through the stratosphere allows the unique opportunity to watch the total eclipse without atmospheric turbulence. Also, traveling at speeds near Mach .9 also “lengthened” the view of the eclipse to over a minute.
