The Bulgarian military research vessel Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii (RSV 421), which is part of the 32nd Bulgarian Antarctic Expedition, crossed the zero parallel and entered the Southern Hemisphere on December 4, at 9:27 p.m. ship's time (10:27 p.m. UTC), the Nikola Vaptsarov Naval Academy said. 

The ship is sailing at a speed of about 9 knots and is expected to reach Mar del Plata naval base in Argentina by December 17, the NVNA added. A visit to the port of Ushuaia is also planned before RSV 421 heads to the Bulgarian Antarctic Base on Livingston Island.

The ship left Varna on November 8 and is expected to return to Bulgaria in April 2024.
