Follow friend, meteorologist and astronomer Joe Rao as he chases the eclipse.
"I myself plan to fly above any clouds on a specially-chartered jet that will attempt to rendezvous with the Moon’s shadow near the Faroes. I will be the guest of the German companies, AirEvents and Eclipse-Reisen."

Read Joe's account of his adventure
"The sun's beautiful corona heralded the beginning of the total phase. Of the 10 total eclipses I've seen, this corona was by far the most brilliant, shining like a globular platinum ring around the moon's black disk; a textbook corona you would see near peak sunspot activity. Adding to this scene was Venus, which shone well off to the east (left) of the sun. Meanwhile, the horizon glowed with the colors of a weird, out-of- place sunset (it was, after all, only 9:41 in the morning)."
