World is gearing up to witness 2015’s first Solar eclipse on March 20.

Among several preparations, scientists highly anticipating the event have also planned to take High Definition pictures of the entire event.

They have decided to take a 360 degree view of the eclipse using GoPro cameras high above Earth's stratosphere.

According to project coordinator Annelie Schoenmaker, “This eclipse is very different from others. This time the moon’s shadow will sweep over the North Pole which will make the moon's diameter appear larger than the sun itself, hence blocking all direct sunlight and turning day into night.”

“Thus we have decide to capture the event differently by sending the cameras in the Earth’s stratosphere,” he added.

Notably, only those residing in northern Scandinavia and the Faroe Islands will be able to watch the complete event with naked eye.
