While most of us are watching the total solar eclipse through homemade cereal box and aluminum foil viewers, some are opting for a more luxurious option–a $10,000 tailgating experience from a remote airport.

Private aviation company Million Air is offering to take passengers to small airports where the sun’s rays will be completely blocked by the moon today. These airports will offer a row of lawn chairs by the wing of the plane, along with an expert astronomer narrating everything you need to know about the event.

Airlines all over the country have been planning months in advance for this rare astronomical holiday. The popular private jet company Jet Linx is offering hourly rental rates between $4,000 and $8,000 per hour, depending on the size of the jet.

While many other airlines are offering themed cocktails and viewing glasses, Million Air is taking it to the next level with these Super Bowl-priced tickets for the Dom Perignon of solar eclipse experiences. [Bloomberg]
