There's a solar eclipse on May 10 that covers part of Papua New Guinea. There are four feasible options to see it, as far as I can tell from the path.
- Alotau, on the east of Papua New Guinea.
- Normanby Island
- Muyua Island
- or possibly, Vurango Island in the Solomon Islands
I'm trying to establish which would be the least effort to get to. My friend in Port Moresby tells me that I'd likely need a boat to get to Normanby. I figure I'd ask here. Which of these is the most accessible location, in terms of cash spent? (I don't mind any form of transportation, although I hesitate to hitch in this territory). As you can tell, I know very little about the region.
