Total Solar Eclipse ’17: Makanda, Illinois, USA

On August 21st, we witnessed one of the most unique natural phenomenons in the world, a total solar eclipse, this one known as the Great American Eclipse. Our great two-week journey through 8 states in the USA culminated in this spectacular event. This USA eclipse is my third total solar eclipse.

Moving to Copenhagen: A New Beginning

With a big backpack on my back, a smaller one on the front and a ginormous suitcase in my hand, I took off early in the morning on August 24th to catch a bus to my new hometown, Copenhagen.

Total Solar Eclipse ’16: Indonesia

Total Lunar Eclipse & Blood Moon ’15

Just over two hours ago, my friend Laura and I woke up and went outside to see the Total Lunar Eclipse.

A Lunar Eclipse is not as rare as a Solar Eclipse, but it is…

Total Solar Eclipse ’15: Faroe Islands

I experienced the Total Solar Eclipse!! Just 5 hours ago, Regin and I were standing outside Hotel Føroyar in Tórshavn, waiting (impatiently) for the Total Solar Eclipse that would only be visible from Faroe Islands and Svalbard. Unfortunately, it was veeeeery cloudy, so we knew that the chances of seeing it were slim, so we weren’t too disappointed when the total eclipse came and we…
