Fly the ring of fire
It was necessary to estimate the weather change, wind, clouds. The main purpose was to fly as much as possible during the eclipse and take pictures in the best place at the right moment. But nature hasn’t always been present. The relief of the island was extremely steep. Huge walls and cliffs where it has been difficult to find a way. With take-offs and landings highly technical. In addition, strong winds and clouds which prevented them to fly on several occasions.
In the meantime, they have given “mini-workshops” with their telescope. One of the strong points of this expedition was their social involvement with locals. It’s not just a question of individual expedition but to share these observations of the sun with the public.
Local TV put them in the evening news while they were on the beach with the kids. And with some of them, they have kept in touch to help them with their studies.
A warm thanks to the partners of Millet Expedition Project: Julbo, Nemo, Katadyn, Trek’n’Eat and all the others.
