Climb aboard this specially chartered Russian plane in the Arctic city of Murmansk and take a journey to see the sight of a lifetime.
Unobstructed by clouds, passengers get front row seats to a celestial marvel. Eventually the time comes -- a total solar eclipse. Day turns to night as the moon casts its shadow above the clouds.
For about two and a half minutes, a 'ring of fire' appears around the sun.
The eclipse was partially visible in parts of Europe, Africa and Asia, but nothing looked quite like this unobstructed view above the clouds.
