Get ready for the most incredible total solar eclipse of your lifetime!
On April 8, 2024, Mexico, the USA and Canada will once again experience a total solar eclipse lasting as long as 4 minutes 28 seconds.
Here's everything you need to know to plan an eclipse-chase, including a detailed study of the path of totality and it's climatology, and 50+ exciting, hand-picked observing locations, from Niagara Falls to "Stonehenge"!
By investing just an hour a week and $50 in binoculars, it’s possible to learn a few simple techniques and quickly gain a real insight into the night sky's ever-changing patterns – and what they tell us about Earth, the seasons and ourselves. Searching more for a learned appreciation of nature and our exact place within the cosmos than academic scientific knowledge, science and travel writer Jamie Carter takes the reader on a 12 month tour of the night sky's incredible annual rhythms that say so much about Earth. During the journey he learns about the celestial mechanics at work in the skies above that are – to the beginner – almost beyond belief. As well as the vital constellations and clusters, and the weird and wonderful nebulas, he searches out “dark sky destinations” across the globe that help increase knowledge and give a new perspective on familiar night sky sights. On the journey he witnesses a solar eclipse and grapples with star-charts, binoculars, smartphone apps, telescopes, spots satellites and attempts basic astro-photography. By year's end, the reader will be able to glance at the night sky from anywhere on the planet and tell what direction he or she is facing, what time it is, where all the planets are and even where the Galactic Center Point is.
So, when is the next eclipse?
It's the first question everyone asks when they're just witnessed their first spectacular Totality.
And by lucky chance, the Path of Totality just happens to pass over some of the greatest tourist sites in the world over the next decade – from Eqypt's Valley of The Kings, Chile's Atacama Desert and Sydney Harbour to Athens, Istanbul and the U.S.A.
Are you ready to join the increasing number of eclipse-chasers who travel to some of the world's most remote spots just stand under the shadow of the Moon, or to witness a Ring of Fire?
Jamie Carter, science and travel journalist, and editor of WhenIsTheNextEclipse.com, details everything you need to know about traveling and enjoying all Total Solar Eclipses, Annular Solar Eclipses (Ring of Fire) and Total Lunar Eclipses between 2018 and 2030.
The rare, beautiful and fleeting phenomenon should be at the very top of your travel bucket list, but booking early is essential, and this book will help you get ahead of the rest and make your travel plans early.
Each journey will be as much a cultural adventure as a celestial hunt, for eclipse-chasing is great excuse to travel to new places and see spectacular sights. All it takes is a little forward planning ...
