I've got hold of a copy of
Geodetic inverse solution between antipodal points,
unpublished report dated Aug. 28 1975.
In this report, Vincenty describes how to modify his solution for the
inverse geodesic problem (Survey Review 23(176), 88-93, 1975) to handle
nearly antipodal points.
I've added the report to the bibliography
and the report itself is available at
Implementors of Vincenty's method should add
cos(sigma) = - sqrt(1 - sin(sigma)^2)
after his Eq. (10).
