Local transit celebrations

No doubt the explorers of the long transit expeditions of the 18th century found ways to entertain themselves while they waited to make their precious measurements. Here in Svalbard the locals are counting down the final hour to transit with renditions from the local choir, husky rides, and hot chocolates all round!

There is certainly a feeling of excitement and celebration of this historical event, despite heavy cloud cover.
