The 2015 Solar Eclipse

The total solar eclipse of March 20, 2015 will have a magnitude of 1.045. Experience 2 minutes and 9 seconds of totality.

This will be the last total solar eclipse visible in Europe until the eclipse of 12 August 2026.

In the early morning of 20 March 2015, the “scouts” will be sent out to observe the weather from our 4 best hotspots for viewing the solar eclipse. From the ship our many buses that we are taking with us will transport you to the chosen place in few minutes.

Our best place (hopefully) will be only 5 km from the ship nearly on the top of the mountain Sornfelli, with an altitude of about 700 meter. We must be at higher elevation because of the low position of the sun this time of year. A narrow road (starting at an altitude of 400 m.) follows the hill, and you’ll have to walk about 4 km to the top where you can buy soup and coffee/tea etc.

For those, not able to walk, we have a few small buses, or you can stay in our larger buses on the road, leading up to Sornfelli.

On 20 March 2013 we visited the 4 “hotspots” and from Sornfelli the sun was shining. The local agent will visit the same places again in 2014.

The weather is a very important factor on the Faroe Islands and the contrast can be great; Spring could be on its way, but there could also be snow. so bring warm clothes, cap and gloves. Under all circumstance you may expect cold wind in all hotspots high up in the mountains.
