About the Author
Fred Espenak is a retired astrophysicist from NASA/GSFC. His primary research involved infrared spectroscopy of planetary atmospheres. He also became NASA's expert on solar and lunar eclipse predictions and still maintains NASA's official eclipse website (eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov).
Known by his nickname "Mr. Eclipse," he is the author of the popular book "Totality - Eclipses of the Sun." He is the author of the comprehensive "Thousand Year Canon of Solar Eclipses: 1501 to 2500" and the complementary volume "Thousand Year Canon of Lunar Eclipses: 1501 to 2500." He has also published 13 NASA eclipse bulletins, each focusing on a major eclipse.
Espenak's www.MrEclipse.com website focuses on eclipse photography while the new www.EclipseWise.com website is devoted to the dissemination of his latest eclipse predictions. An avid eclipse chaser, he has participated in dozens of eclipse expeditions around the world including remote and unusual locations such as the Sahara, the Bolivian altiplano, Mongolia, and Antarctica. Espenak's enthusiasm for eclipses spills over into public speaking, and he is frequently gives talks about his favorite subject.
In 2003, the International Astronomical Union honored him by naming asteroid 14120, Espenak. Now living in rural Arizona, he spends most clear nights losing sleep and photographing the stars from Bifrost Observatory (www.AstroPixels.com).
Jay Anderson is a meteorologist, formerly with the Meteorological Service of Environment Canada. Astronomy has been a large part of his life since his mid teens, and it was only after graduating with a degree in Physics and Astronomy from the University of British Columbia that he adopted meteorology as a second pastime. He has written on the climatology of places along eclipse tracks since 1978, when a solar eclipse was predicted to pass over his home town. He still lives in that home town - Winnipeg - with his wife Judy and an assortment of past and present cats.

One interesting tidbit about this eclipse, which I did not see in the book (though I'm still reading it), but which I discovered doing research for a talk I gave at our local astronomy club in 2012 about that year's annual solar eclipse: this is the only solar eclipse in about ±3000 years where the path of totality passes over two cities (or the sites of two cities) with the same name, specifically Columbus, Missouri, and Columbus, South Carolina.
