Lands of Ice and Snow

Stephen Russell


After missing out on the Patagonian total solar eclipse in December 2020 due to border closures caused by COVID, I crossed my fingers and booked a cabin on a French cruise ship heading to Antarctica with a detour to the 2021 December 4 total eclipse. Amazingly, in spite of all of the COVID restrictions at the time, I was able to board the cruise and came back uninfected. In this talk, I’ll tell the saga of what was involved in the trip of a lifetime to see Antarctica and Patagonia, and the path of totality, and will present lots of photos.
