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 along with Mark Littmann of the popular book "Totality - Eclipses of the Sun". In 2006, Espenak published the comprehensive "Five Millennium Canon of Solar Eclipses: -1999 to +3000" with 5000 years of eclipse maps. Three years later, he published the complementary volume "Five Millennium Canon of Lunar Eclipses: -1999 to +3000". He has also published thirteen NASA eclipse bulletins, each one focusing on a specific 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, Bolivia's altiplano, Mongolia, Lake Turkana and Antarctica.
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).
