Bill Diamond, SETI Institute CEO, along with colleagues and scientists, is on their way on an expedition to see the total eclipse of the Sun happening on December 4, 2021.

It is the day of the eclipse! Bill updates us on the weather conditions:

“Eclipse was a bust on the science front, but successful in demonstrating the stabilizing systems which can be used on future ocean eclipses. Waiting to hear from the other team, further south, but success not likely. Currently facing heaviest seas of the journey. Everything tied down.” - Bill Diamond
