Total solar eclipse to bring black sun, sudden nightfall to Antarctica

It’s the last solar eclipse until 2023, but precious few will be in position to see it.

Direct Travel, which operates the website EclipseTours.com, advertised a cruise to the Southern Ocean to rendezvous with the moon’s shadow. Weather may be a challenge in the notoriously tempestuous region, but the cruise, which departs from Argentina, also features other sights, including a meeting with penguins on Antarctica’s Palmer Peninsula. Prices range between $13,000 and $33,000 per person.
