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.
