About the Author
Fred Espenak is a retired astrophysicist from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. 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 co-author of the popular book "Totality - Eclipses of the Sun." He also wrote 13 NASA eclipse bulletins, each focusing on a major eclipse. In 2014, Espenak published the comprehensive "Thousand Year Canon of Solar Eclipses: 1501 to 2500" and the complementary volume "Thousand Year Canon of Lunar Eclipses: 1501 to 2500." His most recent publication "Eclipse Bulletin: Total solar Eclipse of 2017 August 21" is a comprehensive guide to that most anticipated event.
Espenak's MrEclipse.com website focuses on eclipse photography while the new 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, Kenya’s Lake Turkana and Antarctica. His enthusiasm for eclipses spills over into public speaking, and he frequently gives talks about his favorite subject.
In 2003, the International Astronomical Union honored him by naming an asteroid "Espenak." Now living in rural Arizona, he spends most clear nights losing sleep and photographing the stars from Bifrost Observatory (AstroPixels.com).

The book is well worth the price, even if it won't be useful on 22 August except as a souvenir. Be sued you get the full color version!
Oh, and skies cleared up an hour or so before it began and we had a perfect day observing.
