“Tourists from all around the world have traveled here to see the eclipse,” @tinemari wrote in an email this morning from #Longyearbyen, in #Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago. She estimated that the town’s population doubled for the event. (Svalbard was one of only two places on land where the total #eclipse was visible.) Tine, who is from northern Norway, took a break from work to watch the eclipse with coworkers. “I have seen a partial eclipse before, but nothing like this,” she said. #solformørkelse #regram

Second contact with promenances. Another awsome sight. #eclipse #totaleclipse #longyearbyen #svalbard #norway #travelquest

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Currently on expedition in the Italian Dolomites exploring Bigonda Cave in Selva de Grigno. Discovered in 1952, this is arguably the longest cave in the Dolomites, but due to snow melt one of the 50 internal lakes has completely filled the passage and blocked the main thoroughfare through the cave and our trip has been cut short. An Italian cave explorer (pictured) grabs a quick drink of water from one of the many inlets now seeping through the cave.
