Watch This Beautiful Footage Of The Rare, Total Solar Eclipse

Mar 27, 2015
On March 20, 2015, the March equinox, a solar eclipse occurred. In many parts of the world, there was only a partial solar eclipse. But in the Faroe Islands and Svalbard, Norway, it was a total solar eclipse. Witek Kaszkin of Spitsbergen, Norway managed to capture some beautiful footage of his view of the event. His perch on Mount Fugleberget provided the perfect view to catch the eclipse in all of its splendor.

This year's solar eclipse fell shortly after the aurora borealis appeared, and it also happened to coincide with a Supermoon. This is the first total solar eclipse to happen since November 2013, and isn't expected to happen again until August 2017. And for one to perfectly align with the March equinox again will take another 19 years.
