The only total solar eclipse of 2021 in pictures: Amazing photos from Antarctica

On Dec. 4, 2021, the moon passed in front of the sun in the only total solar eclipse of the year. It was a dazzling sight, but one visible to only a few. The path of totality for the solar eclipse, a thin strip in which the moon's shadow touches the Earth's surface, stretched across a remote part of Antarctica where relatively few human observers could see. (A partial eclipse was visible to parts of Saint Helena, Namibia, Lesotho, South Africa, South Georgia and Sandwich Islands, Crozet Islands, Falkland Islands, Chile, New Zealand, and Australia.

The Only Total Solar Eclipse of the Year Will Cover Antarctica in December

We've seen different eclipses already this year, including the full lunar eclipse that took place back in May and the "Ring of Fire" solar eclipse that came into view in June. According to Mental Floss, there's going to be a total solar eclipse this year, too, and it will be the only one of 2021. This eclipse will take place in December and will be the last one you can see until 2023. Since it is a full eclipse, it will darken the entire sky, specifically in Antarctica. While it will be more difficult to see, there is still a chance to catch the celestial sight depending on where you live.
