In ancient times people fled solar eclipses or looked on them as foreboding. Today amateur astronomers flock to the best observing sites, often planning their eclipse hunt years in advance and traveling halfway around the world to get the best view.
Chasing the Shadow is the complete planning guide to solar eclipse observation for the next generation. Its authors have combined an entertaining exploration of the history of eclipse observation with a planning guide that includes everything from safety and travel considerations to maps and descriptions of upcoming solar eclipses through the year 2020.
About the Authors: Richard L. Talcott is an assistant editor at ASTRONOMY magazine in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and brings expertise in astronomy and mathematics to his eclipse hunt. Joel K. Harris is founder and president of Twilight Tours, Inc., in Burbank, California, and a part time staff member and museum guide at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. He has been an amateur astronomer for over 20 years.
