On December 4, 2021, the moon passed in front of the sun in the only total solar eclipse of the year.

The path of the totality of the solar eclipse, a thin strip in which the shadow of the moon touches the surface of the Earth, stretched through a remote part of Antarctica where relatively few human observers could see.
