Readers are being offered an exclusive holiday deal which will allow them to experience a magical total solar eclipse and the Northern Lights.
The phenomena will be visible from the Atlantic ocean, just off the coast of the Faroe Islands, at exactly 9.45 a.m. on March 20, 2015. It is only one of two places in the world the total eclipse can be seen, and another won’t be visible from this close to the UK until 2024.
Johnston Press readers are being offered the chance to not only get on board the ship, which will be positioned at exactly the right spot for the perfect view, but will also get to meet guest astronomers - BBC ‘Sky at Night’ presenters Pete Lawrence and Paul Abel, as well as impressionist Jon Culshaw. Then, on the same cruise, there will also be a chance for passengers to witness the Northern Lights too. Readers who book through Johnston Press will also have exclusive access to a cocktail party.
The Total Solar Eclipse Seven Northern Lights 15 night Cruise sails from Southampton aboard Fred Olsen’s Boudicca. It departs March 9, 2015, with places available from £2,199 per person.
