All the tourists that came to Svalbard to watch the eclipse actually doubled the number of people in Longyearbyen. People from all over the world came to Svalbard, including «The totaly insane travel society», who you can meet in this video:

Mellom 1500 og 2000 personer har strømmet til Svalbard de siste dagene. 
Alle med håp om å få orkesterplass til morgendagens totale solformørkelse. 
Og det har skapt utfordringer med å finne plass til alle.
