Watch this year's only total solar eclipse
If you were afraid you missed this year's only total solar eclipse, have no fear. Amateur astronomer, Mike Kentriankis caught the eclipse on video from a plane high over the Atlantic for you.
He joined FOX Weather from Santiago, Chile on Monday after Saturday's flight. Antarctica was the only place to see this eclipse between 1:30 and 2:44 a.m. EST.
His was in one of two Dreamliner aircrafts flying over the South Atlantic to give passengers this view, "And it happened so fast being a polar eclipse, the shadow just whips around and makes a curve going over our heads."
This was his 13th total solar eclipse, he told FOX Weather, "It was electrifying. The pictures, they barely do justice of seeing it with the 3-D, but it's the best we can do, you know, without actually being there."
A young Kentraiankis begged his parents to let him join them on a charter in 1978 to see his first total solar eclipse, "I was the youngest person on the trip, 14 years old, and I saw my first total solar eclipse and I had the bug since then."
The moon moves between the sun and Earth, putting Earth in shadow during a total solar eclipse. The glow in the pictures is the sun's corona, its outer atmosphere states NASA.
He is already checking out flights for the next total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 visible in Northwestern Australia.
