About the Author
Patricia Totten Espenak is a retired chemistry teacher and amateur astronomer who has traveled widely with her husband, Fred, to view various celestial events, including Total and Annular Solar Eclipses, Lunar Eclipses, and Transits of Mercury and Venus. She has traveled to 16 total solar eclipses with destinations such as India, Zambia, Tahiti, Turkey, Libya, the Galapagos Islands and Antarctica. Between packing and unpacking, she enjoys hiking with Fred in the Chiricahua Mountains near their home and viewing the wonderfully dark skies of southeastern Arizona.

I’m reviewing it from a child’s point of view and it seems very accessible and welcoming, especially with the car trip story, the diagrams and other illustrations, including photos of the author in Antarctica and the cute young girls acting out eclipse sightings.
There’s plenty of information for us to read and discuss together –a lot is new to me, such as the story about Vulcan. An unexpected bonus is that the author’s husband is an eclipse expert with a website and books for adults.
I’m very excited that we won’t have to break the bank to see this event on August 21, 2017! Either Oregon or Idaho should be a very manageable drive (and we’ll follow the advice to have a Plan B)!
