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 created NASA's official eclipse website (eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov).
Known by his nickname "Mr. Eclipse", he is co-author of the popular book Totality - The Great American Eclipses 2017 and 2024. 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 21st Century Canon of Solar Eclipses is an essential guide to all eclipses of the Sun this Century.
Espenak's MrEclipse.com website focuses on eclipse photography while the 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.” He spends most clear nights photographing the stars from Bifrost Observatory (AstroPixels.com).
