A total eclipse of the sun is one of the most awe-inspiring natural events in the world; by fortunate coincidence two total eclipses will pass across southern Africa in June 2001 and December 2002. This is a practical guide on how to plan for the trip of a lifetime and where best to view the eclipses in Angola, Botswana, Madagascar, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The authors have considerable expertise on the countries covered and provide suggested itineraries and highlights for each region within the band of totality. What happens during an eclipse, a language section with eclipse-specific vocabulary plus related myths and stories are featured. An eclipse viewer is included with all copies.
I would strongly recommend it to all eclipse chasers. Fred Espenak, NASA.
